The Pipe Dreamer
He sits in his chair planning
Many things he might never do
His friends tell him he must act
But he never takes their cue.
The pipe dreamer believes he
Can climb mountains from his chair
Evidently he doesn't realize
To do things you have to be there.
He must come back to reality
Start working towards goals he sets
Opportunities are there if he acts
And pipe dreaming he forgets.
Where there is life there is hope
If only he realizes what he must do
Possibly he might even invent something
That would benefit both me and you.
