I love to procrastinate
It's my favorite thing in life
All things it exacerbates
All persons it brings strife.

I tried to eliminate
This habit I possess
'stances to extenuate
All limits under stress.

Self-help groups anonymous
Meet to cure the hopeless
But I arrive too late because
My chance is even less.

Gradually I have gone through
All good things one-by-one
My demons I cannot subdue
Even at point of gun.

First the career, then the house
All my friends, my family
In the end each hope I dowsed
Indebted to eternity.

'Twas Time solved my condition
Proverbially eleventh hour
By process of elimination
I'd nothing left to delay over.
