The Retired Bloke

On Time

I really hate to be late

For an important date

When it has to be eight

I simply won’t wait

To set off early no debate


To arrive on time that is fine

Ten minutes early that’s divine

Five minutes late now that’s a crime

I know this issue is simply all mine

I have a thing about being on time.

    I too hate being late so I am normally early to most things, the only problem is that being punctual can be so lonely!

      That is very true. I often get so early to a venue that I am the only one. I then start to question whether I have gone to the right place!
