Bored – A piece of Wednesday Whimsy

Perhaps I should apologise in advance for the following …..hey, I was bored!

I know I not supposed to say it,
but sometimes I get bored,
and really, when you think about it,
it is a stupid, phonetic, sounding word.

Am I a board, a piece of holey wood,
that’s been nibbled on by borers?
Or have I been stuck, by razor sharp tusks,
of a pig, eg., bored by a boar?

The boar who was bored,
of his forest in the wood,
thought that if he had a board
he could build a bed,
to sleep on at night,
but he couldn’t find one,
under all of his trees,
and his boredom grew,
so when he saw me,
he thought he’d give me a chase,
then he caught me and bored me,
and quite liked the taste,
β€œThis boring is good”,
thought the boar to himself,
but if he’d have asked me,
I’d have said I wasn’t impressed!

    LoL.. very good. Interesting take on bored! My dad once said to my kids that he’d never been bored in his life (when they were whining,) and on the whole I’ve got to agree with him. Apart from when I’ve had to do boring jobs!

      Thanks Marje. I think it is a word we use too easily sometimes, but sometimes it is true.

      πŸ™‚ Perhaps I should have been a wood worker, with all this board boring going on.

    Very cute. Perhaps the sequel will have guest appearances by Neils Borh and a snippy little plank named Boris? Just a suggestion, to keep the lovely alliteration going… πŸ˜‰

      A plank called Boris – perhaps that should e your next book Brian, I’m sure you could trim it into shape and I wouldn’t be bored reading it. πŸ˜‰
