Sometimes, Always, Never

Every day no matter where one goes
there will always be someone whom 
everybody knows that certain someone 
who is Sometimes late,  Always late, 
Never late and consistently on time;

And in spite of the circumstances
that someone which is Never late 
will at no time be Sometimes late,
or for any reason be Always late 
but will be without fail on time.

But someone who is Never late is 
on no occasion Sometimes late 
or rarely if ever Always late, 
but is quite undoubtedly and  
most reliably always on time,

Which of course just makes it more  
difficult for that someone who is 
Always late or Sometimes late 
to be Never late and certainly
almost definitely on time.  

Now this doesn’t mean someone
that is Always late who may be 
Sometimes late can in no way 
ever be under any circumstances
Never late or not even be on time;

It’s just that someone who is surely
Never late will on no account be 
Always late or Sometimes late
because habit makes it impossible 
to be nothing less then on time.

By all means this does not imply
that someone who is occasionally 
Sometimes late or Always late 
will ever be Never late since 
the goal is to always be on time,

Therefore just being Sometimes late
or even Always late should not ever 
be acceptable to someone who is 
Never late as it is impossible to be 
nothing less than  exactly on time.
