Layabout

I've done nothing today; honestly, nothing.
I washed a few dishes and grated some cheese.
I made myself breakfast, took a big check
To the bank to deposit. I also bought bread.
With the holidays past, I removed colored
Lights from the posts by the hedge and put
White ones back in. I refilled the camel-shaped
Cruet with oil and fixed a big drink. I am
Drinking it now as I look at the rapidly
Darkening sky and heap scorn on myself
For my slothful behavior. I have done
Nothing today.
