When Progress is Lacking

When your “get up and go” gets up and goes,
Motivation not moved to momentum,
Tell the drag to go where the wind blows.
And lethargy back to who sent ‘em.

When others comment on your lack of progress,
There’s no need to explain your intent.
Lack of drive you don’t need to confess:
“Get up and go” got up and went.
