The Lazy Defense

The constant appeal is for doing more
Honour and validate your ten threescore
Our hours employed in the making , doing
Frenetic e’en when peace , calm pursuing
Pushing ourselves hard to make an impact
Agenda determined we think and act
And this not arguing don’t misunderstand
Only the foolish will ignore demand
The absolute requirements ahead
Plus the bottom-line needs of board and bed
To ‘rise and shine’, ‘stand up and be counted’
Every deed, every action valued and amounted
The responding call , the race’s seeming grace
Casual concern ’round lessening the pace
Tragic the denial of what you’re missing
When no occasion to pause, do nothing
