I have a month to do it.
There’s this thing I have to do –what is it?
Write an essay?
Tell a story?
I can’t quite remember what it is,
exactly but it’s important,
and it’s due in about:
Over three weeks –
I have time to get it all done.
That leaves me lots of time to:
Move large objects from Place a. To Place b.
(subject to change without notice)
Small objects can be tucked away
Under something, inside something,
Or put somewhere new and unexpected!
I have two weeks, AT LEAST,
before that thing is due.
I have time.
I have time to watch this new Spanish film,
Enrol in a Learn to Speak Spanish Course.
Learn to speak Spanish,
but do that thing.
In – like a week and a half?
What will I wear?
(Did you see
Meryl Streep’s new haircut?)
I’ll watch another movie,
read another blog.
Just fart around on the internet
for a total of 7 hours a day.
Just a couple of days left.
What was it?
What is Expected of me?
I have time I can write a poem…
If I don’t know how to format a document,
Could this be mistaken for a poem?
What would Meryl Streep do?
I must try to cut my own hair!
I can do this. I can do a good job if I cut my own hair.
(*narrator’s voice: She could not. )
