To Do List

So many thing to do

So much that needs to be done

Clean the house

Cut the lawn

Paint that door

Pay the bills

Go to the post office

Call that old friend

All these weight like a freight train on the mind

So much that needs to be done

Better take some time

Think it over

So I toss to my left

And fall back to sleep

Today is a Friday.  Last day of the week to find work.  I rummage through want ads, circling those which are conducive to my lifestyle.  I eat, shower and dress.  I smile at myself for looking this well-groomed.  I grab my keys, but stop at the door.  I go back to the kitchen and pour a stong drink.  No sense in going now.  No one will hire a guy who’s been drinking.  Well, there’s always Monday.
