Procrastination’s Ways - Poem by Debora Short

Invisible gremlins armed with lengths
Of sturdiest twine, huge iron stakes, errant ways
And an un-yielding determination
To keep 99% of heart stated
Goals from ever reaching desired target
Triumphs victory just an under dog
To Procrastinations resolve and might
Spying that tiniest bit of a part
Fraction or portion of indecision
Those naughty gremlins quickly come to life
Such savage task-masters are they ~ tying
Up dreams, ensnaring the whole thought through those
Pin-holed waver-ings…sending souls off
On masked and un-important journeys
Suddenly, documents needing to be
Filled out, important calls and those most
Essential errands are sent to the back
Of Priorities convoluted lines
