Ah, sweet apathy
the “I’ll do it later” attitude
birthright borne.
“I’ll get to it,” they say
“When I feel like it.”

“I’m just not into
that sort of thing,”
some say
as if they earned exemption.

It’s a battle
they’re unwilling to fight
deadlines dawn
debt due dates converge
or delivery is denied.

And, swiftly
blows over and over
like a fallen leaf
battered by bitter wind
churning and chasing relief
from inertia’s weight.

I would like to hear from you
