Oh, Fiddle Diddle

“There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do.”
Jerome K  Jerome

 Is something doing nothing

Is nothing doing something

After much musing

I find this confusing

Much like a riddle

Oh, fiddle diddle

I’m calling it day

Maybe I’ll hit the hay

or go out and play

Please give me a clue

cuz I’m missing the cue

I need something to do

to have nothing to do

  1. What a fun post and with a great picture of nothing! You always have something to say that either makes me scratch my head and wonder or smile. Thanks for sharing with In Other Words.

  3. Take a walk in the park
    Or a ride on a wave
    Go to the mall
    Just do something brave…
    Got nothing to do
    so here is my thought
    Go find a balloon
    Fly it somewhere north…
    For you my friend
    An afternoon cuppa will do
    Then write down some words
    For us on ‘brew and spew’…

    Hahaha, now I did pull that out of my hat just for you my friend!

    • Now, that just made my day. We write some great poetry together. Like I have said before, we walk to the same beat. Thank you for being you! 💐

      • Yes you do make me smile
        and you’ve given me a plan
        Wait till you see what I’m up to again
        It rhymes with a bee
        you may want to flee
        I do hope you know
        You are reaping the lovely words you sow!

  6. I think you hit the nail on the head with your commentary on this one! Is there really a state of “having nothing to do”, what then is nothing? Very puzzling indeed 🙂
