the intentions are good

always are in the beginning

full of bright hope

flood of ambitions

then the reasons set in

whys, wherefores


there are other, better

things to do

I’ve never met a man

or woman

(cos we’re not sexists in this)

who did not have a good

righteous explanation for quitting

for all those ambitions floating away

on a rising defeat tide

full of flotsam

jetsam of intentions

but they’re not quitters baby

oh no

just this other thing came up

or life changes

we all move on

sorry if you get left behind
