A Touch Of Insincerity


The last thing I wanted to do today was upset you
But I’ve been feeling quite stressed
Because I’ve had so much to do
A really long list of things I intended to complete
And frankly I was worried that I wouldn’t have time
So it’s come as something of a relief
That I have now hit all my targets
And I’m pleased that I even found a spare moment
To go out of my way to upset you
Because that is the last thing I wanted to do today

    Good job! You have completed every one of your goals. But, er, sorry, the last thing I wanted to do today was disappoint you, but I’m not upset.

      It’s ok. On a weird level I suspect that the poem was aimed at myself. I have some ‘issues’ I need to work through…

    Now you’ve been and gone and spoiled it all by commenting on your own post, and I’ve been and gone and spoiled my day because the last thing I wanted to do today was to read your blog! What is even worse is that today is National Lazy Day and we’ve both ruined that!

      I did not know it was National Lazy Day! That really seems like something I should have known about. Then again, I supose actively finding out wouldn’t have been in the spirit of the day…

      Thanks – just something I came up with apropos of nothing, which is my usual methodology. It made me smile so I hoped it would do the same for other people

    I heartily congratulate you on accomplishing your daily goals. However, as I did not find this piece particularly upsetting I would urge you to consider the fact that your endeavors were not altogether successful.

    I am going to help you out and be upset for you. It’s the least I can do for a friend

    Stay well and laugh when you can
