I prefer to think of “Lack of Motivation” As a quirky town one visits Not unlike The North Pole or Reno, where brick streets Coo under your tires Where coffee cafes Serve decaf in recliners to Where snack waiters weave Through the Lazy Boys with Free samples everything with Cheese, the spreadable Kind with wine, Brie en croute Swiss, melted on a Triscuit. It’s so displeasing to think One’s disinclination to Do the correct thing As a character flaw: Rather why shouldn’t “UNMOTIVATED!” Be a daring detour to the Destination, a surprise Cream-filled center baked Into the journey? Guilt ruins everything, So why invest in it, Why let it rust your Route 66 daydreams? Day 20, #100daysproject and National Poetry Month 2022
Thanks to Abby Ott for the prompt. And as always, thanks to the late, great Chris Farley whose Motivational Speak Matt Foley still makes me (and David Spade) giggle to this day.
