Feverish Duties

Feverish duties fill this coffee can,
each piece of folded paper
resembles another one to do.
I keep rejecting the ones I pick
with excuses that pertain to the moment.
Tomorrow's another day I tell myself
not realizing that each day that passes
these feverish duties multiply.
They begin to overwhelm my body,
I feel I'm getting sick,
time to retreat to my humble bed.
Oh the bed, I forgot
it sprung a major leak last night.
It had a little hole a week ago
that I was supposed to patch.
Oh well I guess I'm sunk!

hee hee...
Ya, been there myself a time or two. Yet, I feel too guilty if I leave it go. Boy, do we struggle with ourselves, or what!

Point well made, Dreamer. As for me, I'm going to stop procrastinating....tomorrow.

Well, as I always say, "Don't put off until tomorrow what you can put off until next week." I really, really like this one, LD. Cute.
