People with crowded calendars
And thirteen projects to juggle
Aren't likely to bury themselves
Under comforters to snuggle.
People who sleep to recover strength
To survive a crushing routine
Are as likely to dream original dreams
As a broken down machine.
People that do the world's business,
Though wealthy and honored, may find
Themselves bereft of the power
That can come from an idle mind.
Yes, I know they say an idle mind's
The place for the devil's temptation.
But it also happenss to be the site
Of maximum creation.
