Procrastination



Time and again he did espy her,
Ebony skin and woolly hair.
Unable to harness his wondering thoughts
he fell in complete despair.

He could not from himself conceal his true
feelings.
When passion blazed a trail of desire,
he would need an army to put out the fire.

With every waking moment he envisioned,it
was full time to make a decision.
One must plan,and carefully so
before the inquisition.

Alas!it was too late,he had sealed his
own fate,yet another had escaped.
