What should we do today?

Leisure by W. H. Davies is one of my favorite poems...

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep and cows
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

Here's what
many of us do with our 'leisure' time...

The idea for this cartoon was based on a suggestion from fellow tweeter Bharathy. He suggested that I create something around the theme of life in the city.

The poem just seemed to go along!
