A To Do List

It is a universal thing
All people have their lists
Of chores that they must do each day
Or dates not to be missed.
Of what stuff they should throw away
And what things they should keep
And who’s been hero to “us” all
And who has been a creep.

It is a universal thing
All people have their lists
Which Things are rated Important
And which we do ignore
And what we all should believe
And what we should abhor
And who deserved the most or least
Or who was worst or best.

It is a universal thing
We all make up our lists
Of who to treat with fine kid gloves
And who beat up with fists
And when we should apologize
And when we should stand firm
And when we should tell “little lies”
Or try not to discern.

It is a universal thing
We all make up our lists
And some of these are clear as day
And some seldom seen
And some of them angelic stuff
And some demonic mean
This is the way of all the world
Both dirty and the clean

It is a universal thing
We all make up our lists
Of whom to reward with a Prize
And who would not be Missed
Well now amidst Antagonists
No wise man could ignore
I’ll hide myself and sleep it off,
Delay  thinking any more.
