Munday on Monday: Year’s end

Updated: 2013-12-30T06:22:00Z

Year’s end

I’m seeking an extension, please;

Just show the forms; I’ll pay the fees.

“You mean for taxes?” thus they’ll ask.

But no — a somewhat different task.

I mean this year — so fast it’s run,

So much still on my list undone!

And thus I’d like this year extended

Till undone things are all attended.

And all I ask: a month or three;

Just splice ’em on, some time for me.

In shock, I blurt my year-end screed:

You haven’t got the forms I need?
