When you get ‘Around To It,’ do it

By Ruby (Taylor) Leonard

Honey, the roof’s a leakin’

And the rain’s a fallin’ in.

We don’t have enough buckets

To catch the water in.

He barely even lost a wink

While nappin’ in his bed

He turned over and looked at me

And this is what he said:

“When I get around to it, I’ll do it.”

Honey, remember that loose board on the porch?

-- Well Jr. just fell through

So I came a runnin’ into the house

To ask you what to do.

He was settin’ there in his rockin’ chair

A rockin’ his cares away.

Takin’ a hankie from his pocket

This is what he had to say:

“When I get around to it, I’ll do it.”

Honey, the fence is broken

And the cows are gettin’ out

They’re eatin’ all the neighbor’s grain

And walkin’ all about.

He was settin’ there a whittlin’

On the porch in the old swing

He barely missed a flick of his knife

As he uttered this one thing:

“When I get around to it, I’ll do it.”

The moral of the story,

And I hope you learn this well,

There’s always something missing

In this tale that I tell.

As you go along life’s road

And there’s something you need to do,

The meaning of this poem

Is ’specially for you:

Here’s around to it! Do it!
