Labor Day Project

I had the best intention

with a spurt of ambition

and just enough motivation

it was a good plan

(a good, good plan)

 

See, I got to thinking

it is time for spring cleaning

since summer is ending

as quick as it can

(quicker than I can)

 

So I spent Labor Day

slaving and toiling away

with no time to play

I took out that mess

(I moved that mess)

 

from the corners to the middle of the room

but morning became noon

and the day left too soon

and now I must confess

(of this I confess)

 

The mess is still there

in the middle without care

and I have to share

with this huge pile

(an unattractive pile)

 

My intention is non

my ambition long gone

my motivation sang its swan song

while the mess sits awhile

(a long, long while)
