Shrug of the Shoulders

A failure to act
Passive resistance is my crime
I toe the line, I toe the line

Bench warming’s my profession
Observing safely from the outside
Sitting on the sidelines

Procrastination’s my hobby
Pushing things to the last minute
Always running out of time

Opportunity knocks
I don’t answer
Stay here supine, stay here supine

    I love this. Some hard, hard truth here.

    Wordcoaster, I’ve tried every day to visit your haiku challenge posts, but when I follow your link, all I get is “sorry not found” . Could you check the links you’re leaving?

      Oh no! I don’t know what to tell you–I tried all the links and they work for me. Don’t know what the problem could be, but I hope it’s something fixable. Thanks for somehow getting to my blog anyway! 🙂
