I planned to do so much today
Clean the house, put books away

Go to the bank and pay my bills
Do laundry, wipe the window sills

Clear that long backlog of mail
Make soup; but chuck the bread - too stale

Water the plants, hang up my clothes
And check that all my cupboards close

In short, ensure the house looks neat
But admit at 6 p.m. defeat

Prioritizing – that was fine
I made my list in record time

But interruptions always follow
Oh well, I’ll start again … tomorrow.
