O hail to thee, procrastinator.
When your ideas, some bad, some good,
All cry out “now”, you answer “later” –
They don’t inspire you like they should.
The ploys you could employ are many,
Like “Now’s as good a time as any!
The iron’s hot, there’s sun today,
So strike your blow and make your hay!”
Yet still your hand avoids the hammer.
You see the field and heave a sigh
And, as you watch the sun drift by,
Eschew the smithy’s clang and clamour.
O friend, what force is keeping thee
Confined to inactivity?
