Scrambled Eggs

Things to do,

to be doing things

to do things that need doing,

doing things needed

to be done,

whilst waiting to do

things already done

to what needed doing,

the things themselves cease

and the doing thereof;

which gives us time

for finding things to do.

    Beautiful play on words which impregnates meaning like an egg which needs breaking to relish what is inside.

    Enjoyed the wordplay in this poem and these concluding lines with great insights:

    the things themselves cease
    and the doing thereof;
    which gives us time
    for finding things to do.
