A poem to remind us what we put off today will come back to haunt us tomorrow. Procrastination is the theme of this poem and the effects that
procrastination can have in our lives. Lillian Curtis's poem is one that we can all relate to at one time or another!
by Lillian E. Curtis
To-day we will banish all care,
And from our hearts all sorrow,
To-day we will rest and be gay,
And pay for it all to-morrow.
To morrow is to-day's advocate,
And he proves a faithful one,
For much is deferred till to-morrow,
That should to-day be done.
Think not of it to-day,
Why useless trouble borrow?
There's time enough to do it in,
We'll think of it to-morrow.
And the advocate still pleads,
And on he lures his victims thus,
Till we find alas "too late,"
That to-morrow has ruined us.
