Today will be the day!
A new leaf off the tree-
I’ll spend each bit of precious time
Only doing good for me
I plan to get up early,
Maybe go for a long run.
I would really like to watch T.V.
But there is no time for fun.
I’ll take a shower, clean real well-
And even shave my legs.
Refrain from shopping for new clothes
And parties filled with Kegs.
Then I’ll do the dishes-
The sink is piled high.
I’ll sweep and mop and mow the grass
That’s long surpassed my thigh.
I’ll launder all my dirty clothes
And fold them when I’m done-
I’ll buy fresh goods from the market place,
Right now my fridge has none.
I’ll write some notes to all my friends
Who are afar and over sea-
A hurricane has hit my room,
So I’ll pick up the debris.
I’ll go and change my oil
Maybe go and find a job
I’ll volunteer at the nursing home
And fix that old door knob.
With all these thoughts and plans
I’ve grown tired and feel dismay-
I’m thinking now that my new leaf
Can wait another day.
