It seems few account for being late –
they are unmoved by those who must wait.
Arriving late and blaming the road
paves way for lost moment,
forcing their presence as what is owed
leaves naught for enjoyment.
Starting with making the appointment
should not be done in haste,
not to prepare in time employment
can make for a big waste.
“Available” ain’t transactional.
I can’t restore the moment.
Yes, “attentive ” it’s irrational.
don’t punish or foment.
When the dawdler is unrepentant…
the ridiculous sublime.
goodness is waiting in contentment
for I do not have time.
Being there is an opportunity…
thus seizing the moment,
fulfills my responsibility
to prevent postponement.
Move early and avoid being late –
acknowledge and honor those who wait.
