Sitting On My Beach Chair

 

Written By The Hermit Poet

 

Who the hell needs a career?

Catching rays

Reading philosophy books all day

I’m not a frustrated big shot

With an empty fridge

 But has kitchen granite counter tops

No

I live in a sixty year old three room shack

Concrete Block Structure

Flat Roof

Survived multiple hurricane attacks

Sharing space with

Reptiles

Rodents

Termites

And

A gigantic organic vegetable garden out back

Love my Sony Walkman

Forget digital sound

Will die a cassette man

For over forty years

Bar-B-Que

1-2 times per week

Colonoscopy just came back all clear

Drink Ice cold Heineken beer

Nine years ago stopped cutting my hair

    Love this.
    How did so many of us get sold on the idea that life is a career to the detriment of our lives?!
