Procrastination destroyed my GPA.
There’s no excuse, what do you want me to say?
I always think: “Not now, maybe later, it can wait.
How many points off if I turn it in late?
There are a hundred other things that need to be done,
Maybe my mind will think better after some fun.”
A week goes by; the due-date is in sight.
No worries, I finished the job in ten minutes last night!
I say, “Those delays weren’t destructive; my grade will be just fine.”
My lack of effort shows up in red ink, every time.
Work ethic is the difference between tasks and chores,
If I fixed mine, I’d avoid all this sorrow.
Fine! If starting sooner will raise my scores,
I’ll change my ways first thing tomorrow.
