January 22nd 2016 (Too much production to be productive)

by Brendan Strong

In fits of distraction
I can’t seem to take action
To move matter that will
Make enough money to fill
Pockets and wallet
Take it out again for it
To pay for more matter
Made into some tatter
To give me delight
Help me sleep at night
Through the sure knowledge
My kids will go to college
Get an education
Good job, payment
And a mind so full it has fits of distraction
That prevent productive action
