G Is For "Give Me Time" - Alphabe Thursday, 3-4-10



I am participating in Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday!
Check it out at Jenny Matlock...off on a tangent, Alphabe-Thursday and join in the fun!
 
Give Me Time
 
Just give me time, is my refrain,
I know I'll get it done,
But then I put off one more task,
In lieu of something fun!

Just give me time, I tell my boys,
And solemnly profess,
I'll tackle years of clutter,
And get rid of all that mess.

Just give me time, I'll exercise,
And be svelte once again,
That's my weekly mantra,
I'll start, I know, but when?

Just give me time, I'll take a class,
To help enrich my mind,
Perhaps that's what I need,
To escape from this old grind!

Just give me time, I'd like to try
To learn to salsa dance,
Then I'll try the tango,
And I'll look for new romance.

 Just give me time, I always say,
Alas, my time's run out!
I'd better get a move on,
The time is now, no doubt!
