I have a friend (not me)

I have a friend (not me)
    who's too lazy for his own good
    and doesn't exercise as much he should
    and doesn't write as much as he could.
That is my friend (not me).

I have a friend (not me)
    who stays too much alone
    and stubbornly keeps to his own.
    Where have his seeds been sown?
That is my friend (not me).

I have a friend (not me)
    who would rather watch TV
    than go out and sit under a tree
    and think of what his next poem should be.
That is my friend (not me).
