.4. Unsure


Hesitation causes problems
Indecision leads to stammers
Calling warnings far too late
For builders dropping hammers

Forgetting where you left things
Or drilling holes for screws
Not checking where the wires went
Blue sparks that blew a fuse

Not knowing where you’re going
When driving down a road
With a lorry full of nutty slack
On a bridge for half its load

At last procrastination
Putting off things till tomorrow
All those jobs you should have done
Like this verse ends in sorrow

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
