1001 Excuses








One day
My client asked me
To write an e-book on excuses
For submitting work so late
After being fed up hearing excuses
So unique every day
He was wondering, how I get so many excuses!
You can imagine, how lazy I am
This is the same old story
That every client I worked with have to tell

Clients give me a day or some hours
To finish an article and then to send it
Even if I have weeks to do
I starts working
I wake up so late as ever
First I count, how many hours left for the deadline
I could find enough time to sit idle
Even then, I will have some hours to finish the work
With few hours left for the deadline
I start working, setting period for each article
Then start rushing to finish it off
There come some un-expected issues
I find myself getting after it
With no choice but to attend it
Deadline gets so closer
Then it becomes a race against the time
Not always, there is a happy-ending

Once the deadline is over
I start getting mails and calls from clients
I have no choice but to answer them
They ask why I haven’t send work on time.
From silly illness to serious issues
From travel to events
Power cuts to internet troubles
Every day I kept giving excuses
I hope to meet deadlines someday
Without any excuses
To give relief to the clients



This poem is for those who always looked forward to my excuses.
