The Waiting Part

Later on I'll write a ballad,

But for now bored and waiting,

Watching TV, turning pallid,

Zombified from life abating.

So I sit here eating salad,

Taking naps and reading, rating.

Writer's block for now is valid,

Til the challenge I'm awaiting

Prompts me to compose a ballad,

And quit this vegetating.

The End
