When you are married to LAZINESS.


When you are married to Laziness, you look just like this...

Lazy is my wife’s name
She doesn’t leave me alone for a second
She fears I’m going to decide to do my important duties
She treats every goal in my life as a scandalous mistress
Which would ruin my marriage to her and have me eloping with success…
So she decided to keep me hooked forever in her sticky web of pleasant idleness
She poisons my food with a gallon of procrastination
Everyday I remember…

my loyal friend -Conscience
never ceases to remind me.
The piles of dutiful chores and assignments
Waiting diligently and patiently for me to fulfill my husbandly duties.
Some chores are just not faithful enough,
They are quick to run away with the attractive and ruthless Deadline…
I stay and watch as important opportunities that appears only once in a full life
Run and disappear as soon as they see my wife…
I have been seriously considering a divorce
But I fear that the effect of the deadly drug
Had eaten deep into my system
Leaving me defenseless to its bittersweet concoction of pleasant idleness…
