For today's prompt, write a lazy poem. Your poem could be about a lazy river, lazy afternoon, or just being plain old lazy. I'd be a stickler on how you should come at this prompt, but I don't feel like putting in the effort. Write whatever makes you feel good.

Here’s my attempt at a Lazy Poem:
“Late Night Dilemma”
It was half-past three in the morning
when a poem hit without warning.
At the time, I thought it could be good,
but I hit a snag that's understood
by any creative late at night
when I found no paper by moon light.
So I thought if it were meant to be
the poem would wake later with me.
But alas! Those words did not return
and laziness left this poet burned.
