song of books that go on too long

sometimes I read a book and find
I'd rather be doing something else with my mind
and what began as entertainment
slowly becomes agony to my brainment
perhaps you think your extended allegory is clever
well maybe it is but then why do I want to sever
my own head from its larger corpus
so that I can swim away from this book like a porpoise
author I'm sorry I know you tried
but I can't read any more because my brain is fried
