The Every Day List

Why do we call it the

Bucket List?

Is it

Because so many of us

Never get the chance

To full-fill our lives

before we

Kick the bucket?

Why should I throw

My dreams

Into that pit

With no room?

Watch my future

Wash round

Spill over and out

And onto

The ground.

Why should I wait

For the rains of time

To fill my rusting bucket?

Can we change the name to

The every day list?

Because we should be living like

Tomorrow is our last

Not living for tomorrow

Only to let this one

Slip past.
