I thought of helping a neighbor today|
but then feared Iíd get in the way.
I thought of visiting my former boss
but Iíve been told his brainís a loss.
I thought of reading to the blind
but their kind of schoolís hard to find.
I thought of toys for a childrenís ward
but such expense I can hardly afford.
I thought of endless, noble acts
but I'd prefer to relax--
others will cover my tracks.
