Procrastinate

Are you the one who procrastinates, or is it just me
I often like to put of what I know just has to be
I would like to do things that need to be done
But every day I always find that the sloth in me has won

Would it not be fun if the jobs just did there selves
Or if the shelves I needed were put up by some elves
What about the garden I could cover it in gin
Then it would come up half cut would that be a sin

What about the car it needs a wash and wax
But my aching body I don’t want to over tax
What about the fencing it needs a lick of paint
Once I start to do it I’m sure that I will feint

As for the washing the machine is on the fritz
The thought of hand washing just leaves me in bits
My wife Want me to cook some pork
I want a wine but can’t pull the cork

If I procrastinate today tomorrow soon will come my way
With other jobs that must hold sway
Then in the turmoil I will drown
Procrastinate and wear a frown

    You have a good poem here even though it could use a few spelling and grammar corrections. Perhaps you were procrastinating when it came to proofreading. It's still an admirable write.

    With pockets full of money, anything is possible Owen. My pockets are there holes in so I have to do everything myself, and more. :( Very well written and fun to read. - xoxo love Anne-Lise :)
