After a while when the boredom sets in and
you find that to grin and to bear it don’t cut it,
but you got to sit through it and swallow it
even when you can’t follow it
what do you do?
do you wonder what’s on the other channel?
do you wonder
if there’s some way you can funnel your thoughts
to an opening that lets you get out?
A blue funk is not an item of clothing
although some wear it well.
