I can't pass a bookstore with buying a book or more. Sadly they sit on my shelves awaiting me to crack their spine.sometimes I fee they taunt me.




I’ve gathered books I wish to read

New and old with promised charm

They tease and taunt upon my shelf

These unread tomes and treatises 


Classics all but some obscure

History fiction biographies

From Euripides to Harper Lee

Eclectic in depth scope and range


They sit and taunt this lazy lad

You spent good money on this lot

Now we sit in silent rage

At being unused an afterthought

I cherish the scope and specificity of "from Euripides to Harper Lee" --- and yes, same!
