Catering To Nonsense - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Catering to nonsense,
I've spent enough of my time invested.
And I can not say it was a waste of it,
Since there was so much I learned...
In the process of my donation.

I realize I was not the only one,
Sidetracked by the attraction to procrastinate.
But glad I am I did awaken with a motivated purpose.
And I think of the ones who get nothing done,
With claims they have no time left to appreciate.
But lots of it they give in their haste to escape from reality.
