I find so many ways
To put off what I should do
When it is something
That I really don't want to.

It's amazing how much busy work
One can find about
When there's something big you're dreading.
And I just can't figure out

What makes me put it off
Until I can wait no more.
Although I know if I'll just jump right in
It will be done before

I know it. But I delay.
Is it something in my nature
That makes me do such things?
It's understandable from someone immature

But I'm old enough to know better.
So, I make excuse
For not proceeding with the task
Until it is no use.

And as I go about my job
I wonder what the fuss was about.
Because all I had to do
Was take the garbage out!

I can understand procrastinating on that's forever down to the dumpsters!

You could have taken the trash out 10 times in the time it took to write that poem.


Sorry. My mom must have been channeling through me. (Not that I believe in that crap.)
