Banish this insistent and sly beast they call procrastination! It soothes my anxiety of old age and lures me into a sense of tempus ignorantiam (a type of apathy of the passing time). Perhaps it is the nature of youth? Yet I have bid my youth adieu some time ago!
It won’t be too long before I see grey hairs and feel weak bones! What shall I do then when a fully dug grave beckons?
My astonishment shan’t be from surprise but rather fear.
