Saturday's My Lazy Day by Kenn Nesbitt
Saturday’s my lazy day.
I sleep until it’s noon,
then stay in bed and play a game
or watch a new cartoon.

And then I like to read a book
or maybe take a nap,
or snuggle with my kitten when
she cuddles on my lap.

I’ll search around the internet.
I’ll fiddle with my phone.
It’s nice to have a lazy day
to goof off on my own.

There’s truly nothing better.
It’s what Saturdays are for.
I only wish my children would
stop banging on my door.
