"Too busy with living for busy-ness"

Because of You

The busy-ness of business threatened
To eat the morning and spit out the seeds
Into these heavy-lidded eyes my friend
Till first you measured then you met my needs

Ever since then I am much on the mend
And have had such small successes as these:
The oven man came and made his repair
The garage man filled his dumptruck to spare
Us the ruins and rinds of centuries

Someone will live in the garage and we
My properly-working household and me
Will make better use of our groceries
The oven fixed garage cleaned more or less
All because of you my friend to the end
Too busy with living for busy-ness

Isn't that the truth, even now that I am retired I find I am so busy at times that in between I have to sleep to keep from running down. The income/expense statement seems to laugh at me when I try to fill in but I have grown to smile and bury it under whatever item is the handiest. Great write Steve.

"Too busy with living for busy-ness" came to a special effect afterwards. This is subtle and so skillfully-written!!!
