Procrastinator’s Oath

It's not that I can't do the work
It's just so—well, it's dull
I'll start in just a few minutes—
Yeah, after this song is done

Okay, to work I go,
I've opened up the book
Put my name on the paper. . .
Time for a break
I think I'll make a snack
Is that Back to the Future on TV?
I'll finish after this movie—
Oh, sweet, a marathon
I'll crack down in a couple hours

I'm kind of sleepy
No way to work
I'll just take a power nap. . .

Class is in two hours
Shit shit shit
Deep breath
Open the book…

And in fifteen minutes, I'm done.
