Killin' Time

I try to be a model citizen and live an upright life, Though on occasion I've been accused of killin' time! I've always considered it a harmless and victimless crime, But I must admit my spells of dolce far niente have been so rife! I suppose some folks consider killin' time an abominable crime. Well, if that is so I reckon I'm as culpable as anyone around! Should I face a judge and jury I would most likely be found, Guilty of murder and sent to Leavensworth for the crime of killin' time!
