Impatience

Impatience

I bought a cake for tomorrow
But I ate it today
"Don't you have any self control?"
I can hear you say

I got a present for Christmas
Which I opened on Christmas eve
I don't think it really mattered
It's the thought that counts I believe

I had an egg for Easter
But ate it the day before
Well, early eating of Easter eggs
Isn't against the law

I just never want to wait
For the pleasures tomorrow may hold
And admit I really do seem
Lacking in self control

But if my lack of patience
Should cause you any sorrow
I'll leave the washing-up in the bowl
And do it some time tomorrow
