It’s Saturday morning and grass needs a mowing.
The weeds in the garden keep growing and growing.
The garage is a mess, and a broom’s waiting there.
The bathroom needs painting, but he doesn’t care.
The garbage is full and needs put in its can,
but now’s not the time. It’s not part of his plan.
There must be good reason to warrant delay.
Does he think if ignored, they will just go away?
Not a man in this world has more he could do.
If he doesn’t get started this day will be through.
How can this man with so much on his plate
find good cause and reason to procrastinate?
It’s because he’s a father who is certainly wise,
and a giant of a man, in his dear family’s eyes.
He’s a man who has mastered life’s priorities,
as he chooses each moment important to seize.
So where is this man with so much to be done?
He’s in the backyard playing catch with his son.
