The Weekend To Do...
by Padmaja Iyengar - Paddy
Bookmark and Share
  On Friday night of every week,
Without fail my notepad I seek,
To make a list of things to do,
Over the weekend without ado.
 
To get up early on Saturday’s not easy,
As the week’s “toil” makes me so lazy,
That I always end waking up quite late
And continue the lazing in supine state!
 
My To Do List for Saturday goes for a toss,
Quite a bit of guilt, it manages to cause.
I tell myself, I’ll make it all up on Sunday;
I’ll surely attend to the list any which way.
 
Late return from an outing on Saturday night,
Leaves me tired and on Sunday morn I fight
To get up early and fresh  with all my might,
But lo and behold, it’s yet another bullet I bite!
 
Every weekend, the same story tends to unfold,
Causing me a sense of guilt and misery untold.
As most items in my To Do List remain unticked,
I tell myself, Paddy, you deserve to be kicked!
 
Next weekend, I will surely complete
All the unfinished tasks clean and neat.
Whether my resolve meets with success,
Is, I am sure by now, anybody’s guess:-))
