Procrastination, in Poem Form

By Persephone


We all know what needs to get done,

We know which tasks cannot be outrun.

We know this,

Yet so far from bliss

Are fulfilling our obligations

That other duties require our absorption.

For who else can paint our toenails?

Who else could clear out our old emails?

There are random youtube videos to partake–

Or the cookies we might bake.

There are so many other things we could do:

Read a book, marry a banker, or ride a bike (to name a few).

Given some thought, we could find plenty of chores.

It’s human nature to look to other shores.

However, for all these excuses, I must warn ya’

All boil down to “I don’t wanna!”
