May 26th – Planning

I was thinking about things today and listening to some people talking about something and … well, I realized how much of our lives we waste on planning things instead of implementing them–or, better yet, all the time people say they’re planning but are instead doing nothing. Today’s poem is another list poem, which I seem to enjoy writing for some reason I cannot define.


Planning, planning

Always planning

Drawing maps

Making outlines

Researching info

Creating slides

Accumulating papers

Reading books

Brainstorming ideas

Talking lots

Doing nothing

Wasting time

Avoiding work

Ditching assignments

Ignoring commands

Doodling nonsense

Chucking ideas

Hiding fear

Planning, planning

Always planning

How about

Doing something?
