November 17: Sudden Stop

First it’s the preparation, then the work,
Then shifting gears when circumstance requires.
Alas, it is not possible to shirk
Responsibilities when one desires

More sleep or entertainment, but it’s not
Maturity that ranks ought over want-
In calculating what, if I get caught,
Will be the penalty, I’m a savant.

So if I disengage from any task,
It’s not that I do so sans reservation,
And if you’re curious enough to ask,
I’ll list ten ways that it’s self-preservation.

If not maturity, wisdom perhaps
Will keep me out of time’s pernicious traps.
