I was going to write this yesterday, but figured I could just do it tomorrow. This will be funnier in a minute — especially since today is National Napping Day, a day of procrastination.


I’ll do it tomorrow,
I said
So I can sleep an extra
Hour before work.

I’ll try again
Tomorrow, I said
So I could give up
Again today.

I said tomorrow
Yesterday, so I could
Think about how
To word my next excuse.

I also said tomorrow
Because you know I
Won’t today; you know
I’ll just say “Tomorrow.”

I’ll get out
And say I’ll try today,
But until then,

I’ll keep dreaming
About tomorrow
Tomorrow will never come.
