The To-Do List Blues

I’ve written about
This topic before
If you’re actually
Keeping a score

But my to-do list
Has not gone away
A fixture in my life
Alas, it’s here to stay

Day after day
I cross things off
But I guess I never
Work hard enoff

One chore gets done
And two more appear
Month after month
Year after year

Like the Greek Hydra
My to-do list won’t die
It keeps on growing
Despite how I try

Maybe I’ll just
Toss the thing away
And go outside
To enjoy this lovely day

Get Lost

You can’t miss it!
Well, take a guess what
The phrase fills me with fear
And puts knots in my gut

If there’s a way to get lost
That’s all I will find
The landmark’s dissappeared
Drives me out of my mind

The GPS system
On my fancy smart-phone
Generally speaking
Can get me back home

But it does make mistakes
That’s what I think
And I find myself lost
Before my eyes blink
