Discipline

Arise! Thy couch has clasped thy butt enough!

And soon there will no longer be a worm ~

The early birds are tugging at the rough,

The tardy ones must settle for wheat germ.

Now take thy quill and scribe ambitious lists

Of groc’ries, household tasks and lofty goals.

Then focus on the ones above the mists

The other crap, consign it to the coals.

How many days begun with fragile trust?

How many hours are burned up in the flame

Of obfuscating Vampire Wars and dust?

See clear! My friend, forget that online game!

Achievement comes to those who know the score,

That doing gives the strength for doing more.
