Sailing Boat

My garage has this sailing boat unused
been sitting there for seven years or more
“I have no time” remains my lame excuse

and critics tell me I can simply choose
then do it right away, not ask “what for?”
my garage has this sailing boat unused

and we are kept for ever half-amused
how things we like to do are such a chore
“I have no time” remains my lame excuse

for somewhere on the road we get confused
with disconnection to our vital core
my garage has this sailing boat unused

and then becoming stubborn we refuse
to risk and open up perception’s doors
“I have no time” remains my lame excuse

perhaps it’s time to book me on a cruise
and leave behind this clutter on the shore
my garage has this sailing boat unused
“I have no time” remains my lame excuse.
