Rhymes With Phased Closures

I'm radiating heat on a hot day

I'm consuming fluids, breathing air, firing synapses, and the like

My manners are in good shape

But I snap when snapped

I have a thing for celery

I lazed about a good bit and fell asleep in the sun

I celebrated, I ate, I took note, I slept some more, I read, I watched, I brushed my teeth

I got ready for more

I meant to just put together a string of things

Is "I got ready for more" the true last line? It works to tie the poem's details into a loop, like a string of regular pearls.
