  1. The Procrastination Poem

    Alas, here I sit and thoughtfully write,
    in order to describe my plight
    So long as I do,
    my chores are out of sight,
    and mind;
    Temporarily remaining blind
    to all my obligations
    plaguing me, but still denying,
    my sorry situation.
    You see,
    I’m very good at this,
    and everyone excels in something!
    I wait for what inspires me,
    and what
    the next moment

    I’ve succeeded!!
    I’ve found another word that rhymes!
    Yet still the clock keeps ticking,
    and I’m running out of time…
    And so, I must,
    I’ve got to go,
    no longer being able to justify
    this ‘de’il may care’,
    utterly cavalier,
    all-consuming denial!

    (I’ve so many other things to do,
    yet while reading this, so did you!)

    (I bid you fond farewell. Goodbye!)


  2. I offer you an invitation,
    I hope effective is my power of persuasion...
    Of course, for us,
    it doesn’t take much
    to keep us at our computer stations…
    Alas, once more, inevitably,
    I've succumbed to avoiding reality

    So do feel free to add some more,
    though “real life” knocks at our door!

    (And I thank you for participating,
    to keep this ‘flaw’ perpetuating...)

    Of course, you may pick size, colour and font,
    and styles galore as is your wont!
    Have some fun, I say;
    For procrastination is the way!

    Thats really good :smile:
  4. Hey - That didn't rhyme...:blink:

    Instead of getting one thing done
    I can’t help trying to have some fun
    And so I’m always basking
    in the glory of my multi-tasking​

    it's very good:biggrin:
  8. I do appreciate you reading!
    But really I am pleading;
    Won’t you take some further time
    in coming up with words that rhyme?
    I know you’ve got it in you
    to waste this time like
    like I do!!

    It's really, truly quite amazing
    How we sit here, with our eyes glazing,
    Thinking hard, "Oh! What to say! -
    Oh why can't things just go my way?"
    And still we sit, and still we think,
    And then decide to get a drink;
    Turn off the lamp, and sketch a flower,
    Change the bed, then take a shower.
    We can find so much to do
    Except those things that we ought to!

    All through the day we duck and dither,
    Here and there, and yon and hither.

    Well, let's get busy, let's make hay,
    Try not to fritter the day away.
    As I sign off here, I pass to you
    The job of stalling...
    Of going through
    Each and every damned excuse
    For why "just trying" is of no use!

    (Does it rhyme enough? :tongue:
  10. What a great start!

    What a wonderful reply!

    Although it’s not always easy
    to find more words that rhyme…
    it is indeed a successful try!

    (Not to mention, you’ve frittered away time,
    not only yours, but gratefully, mine!)
  11. I should be doing something else
    Yet here I am, as you can tell,
    indulging in some more distraction,
    bereft of further plans of action

    I wish some more of you’d reply
    to keep this thread alive though awry
    in mutual misbegotten intentions,
    yet nevertheless, creative inventions!

    I'll read them later.:tongue:
  14. :laugh:

    Not if there's another way,
    never do today
    what you can put off till tomorrow
    Come back to read, as you may
    with time you beg or borrow!
  15. Sunday morning...

    It’s still quite early in the day
    yet I’ve already frittered near 3 hours away!
    Looking at things that make me laugh,
    never ‘copying & pasting’ quite enough
    So, I continue on my mission
    with endorphins high,
    and towards further submission!

    Haha, wow, are you ever-brilliant!
    Helping me waste away my millions
    of seconds that could be elsewhere directed.
    Stacks of paper sit, neglected.
    Rooms want cleaning;
    their pleads? REJECTED.
    I rest instead and listen to songs
    And tell myself "It won't be long,
    I'll get up and work."
    But the chair is strong,
    and the computer remains so tantalizing.
    And my brain continues analyzing
    reasons for doing what I should.
    I mentally list the cons and pros
    and finally, the answer shows.
    "Sounds like I need to do stuff,"
    I mumble. "The mind's always right,"
    I sigh and I grumble.
    "It's good to be busy, the logic's detailed.
    Oh, wait! One sec - I've another email!"


    (Ah, btw: what a great idea for a thread! :laugh:

    ...S'pose I should rhyme here too, as it's been said. :unsure:)

    ALL the poems in this thread are fantastic and hilarious! Great work, all:biggrin:
  19. To The_Discarded...

    That was really funny as hell!
    You excel at this too, I can clearly tell!
    And I thank you for the compliment,
    and engaging in further procrastiment!
    (Yes, I truly reciprocate the sentiment ~
    Your own talent is quite evident!)

    Well, so much for what I was going to do…
    Now I’m obliged to reply to you
    I know that Sunday’s a day of repose,
    so today we’re forgiven I suppose…
    But I’m afraid of what this next week will bring
    as I continue to avoids all those little things!

    (oh, I did fold my laundry,
    though not much more keen
    Yet even put it away,
    writing inbetween!)

    What is a Procrastination
    My its an abomination
    All the laziness I see
    You might as well describe me

    You see I put off the task of looking it up
    Cause I have these lovely beers to sup
    This coursework is too hard
    So I Stooped to send an e-card

    You see email is our thing
    You get one with a ding

    My poems are full of rhyme
    I learn properly If I find the time.

    :laugh: So terrible, I'm hopeless
