Oh! My sweet friend Procrastination,
Will your games ever end?
You tempt me with your company
And make me choose between my friends.
Why do you get so jealous
When I spend time with my friend Work?
You stare at me with needy eyes
And I feel like such a jerk.
I do everything you ask,
I’ve played your games and watched your shows
But although I’m having fun
As my boredom dwindles, my workload grows.
And when we finally part
I always find my friend Stress awaits
To lecture me about my choices
And the destructiveness of our dates.
Perhaps dear Stress is right
And you are dragging me down
For when I find my papers stacking
I find that you’ve left town.
So now, too late, I understand
Through the tricks that you have played
That you are a fair weathered friend
And in bad times you will betray.
