Dither


I'm in a dither should I hesitate
Will hang back take my time
Better being in two minds, they think
I get flustered and panic in a tizzy
Really getting into a crazy stew
I'm told I always seem to faff about
When I have to take a small decision
I think it's better, ponder, waver, vacillate
Indecision doesn't mean I'll delay
Just like to ponder it's just my way
Dilly dally, shilly shally that's just me
Getting into a flutter when I spend a pound
Just been told, ' it's my round'

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
