It is easy to file
Your life in neat little
Boxes categorized
And alphabetized
With little index
Cards marking each
Event in chronological
Order and ensure its
Kept up to your standards
Eliminate waste
People and things
Which no longer fit?
Schedules must be kept
And time marks them
With a felt tip pen
So you can remember who
To forget, who to keep
At a distance and who to hold
To tight that they too
Will run away
