Verse Day – When I Get Time

When I Get Time

When I get time –
I know what I shall do;
I’ll cut the leaves of all my books
And read them through and through

When I get time –
I’ll write some letters then
That I have owed for weeks and weeks
To many, many men.

When I get time –
I’ll pay those calls I owe,
And with those bills, those countless bills,
I will not be so slow.

When I get time –
I’ll regulate my life
In such a way that I may get
Acquainted with my wife.

When I get time –
Oh glorious dream of bliss!
A month, a year, ten years from now –
But I can’t finish this –
I’ve no more time.
                                        -Thomas L. Masson
