Too Much Is Better


I have so many things to do... I never get them done...
But keeping always busy is... The way I have my fun... Be-
cause if I were idle I... Would feel depressed and blue... For
want of mental exerccise... And something more to do... I
would not be content if all... My work were put away... And
every morning meant... Another lazy day... And that
is why I truly like... The tasks in front of me... Regardless of
how difficult... Or many they may be... And I would rather
have too much... Than not enough to do... Because each
project peps me up... When I have seen it through
