Here’s my latest entry into the dVerse Open Link – why not take a look at all of the other wonderful poems for the last time in 2013?
Here’s my perspective on the end of the year… run for your lives – or not!
– This is the End –
Find the time and squeeze it in
Just one more thing before you go
‘Would you mind?’ and
‘Could you look into this?’
Yes, it’s the end of year rush
to get everything done.
Because the world will end
if the tiniest task is left unfinished
Hell will freeze over, all clocks will cease
If we’re not chained to our desks
Until the very bitter end or
until public transport is on its last legs.
Here’s the thing – it’s all a con
dictated by the start of a brand new year
(You do know that
not everywhere uses the
Gregorian calendar, don’t you?)
If you leave just a few jobs until 2014 –
the ones which aren’t urgent
in your own, sensible estimation –
All will be well.
I guarantee it.
