There is this land, you all know, and you slightly dread,
The land in which you get off the sofa and early out of bed.
Procrastinators’ dream it is, no frenzy, fear or hurry,
For in this land the rule it is, tomorrow’s time to worry.
The bills piling up until the ceiling, nearly tilting,
Your favourite TV show on tonight, you’re so happy you could be lilting.
Updating your CV is on and letters you should write too,
But when you’re feeling oh so tired, rest is good, it’s true.
Your gym bag is already dusty, you should really go,
A friend is writing, coffee now? You can’t really say no.,,
You could of course sit down and write the things you really should,
Or you watch Colbert and Co on Youtube, it’s too good.
From there you find the puppy videos and kittens all galore,
And when you check your clock again, it is already way past four.
You could practice guitar and practice down until your bones,
Or…you could, you know, as well watch the latest Game of Thrones.
The flat is grimy, you just sigh, it really does need cleaning,
But then your evening show’s to start, again it’s intervening.
The bank needs calling, the doctor waits and you should sort it out,
Today you’re tired, back is hurting, tomorrow’s time, there’s no doubt.
Tomorrow you will be your best, get early up and work,
You’ll clean the flat and read a book and meet the bank jerk.
You will play the guitar and write about all the things you should,
And if there’s time you’ll cleanse your skin, a mask also would be good.
Tomorrow will be fine, you know, the day you’ll sort it out,
Tomorrow creativity will flow, the end of our drought.
Tomorrowland has space for this, the tasks you always dread,
Like reading the police’s letter because you ran a red.
In it you will meet with the lawyer or go to the bank,
It is the land of angst and pain, if I must be frank.
So, don’t you worry about it now, tomorrow there’s a fix,
And, who knows, tomorrow you might be working late till six.
It is the land of all worries, fear and sorrow,
But don’t fret just now and remember, you can always deal with it tomorrow.
