My Unfinished Baffling Morning Thought

By Walt Perryman

Yesterday I worked outside in the hot Sun,
I worked a lot, but I didnít get anything done.

Before I get one thing finished, I start on another,
Before I finish that one, I am doing some other.

But, I stay busy at not getting anything done.
The next day nothing is finished not even one!

Reading this thought might make you dizzy,
Because when Iím doing nothing, Iím still busy.

Iíll finish this later, so itíll make more sense to you,
Unless I'm too busy getting nothing done later too.
