Just a little ditty for all of the multi-taskers out there, who drive the rest of us nuts. LOL

Iím not a rocket scientist

But I can surely do

A little math to reconcile

Things that surely are true .


Today I wrote a formula

So everyone may see

My most important conceptó

My great discovery.


When M means Man

And J is Job

And T equates to Time

I can express in symbols

(Just like Albert Einstein)


The simplest equation

That most folks I believe

Can use to make life happy

And easier to live.


And so M=JT

Expressed in prose or rhyme

Means man is only meant to do

Just one thing at a time.


And thus to bosses everywhere

I dedicate my rhymeó

A man is only meant to do

Just one thing at a time.

HaHa Londis...I would go crazy if I only did one thing at a time. I marvel at those who can hold their interest and focus on just one thing. Great write, though you certainly point out the (now obvious) error of my ways. (laffin)
Take care,

Ha! This is not just hilarious, Lonny, me sweet, it's a had-to-be-written "ditty" indeed!

You have such a marvelous pen for rhyme and meter... always tap my toes, bob my head and there's that ever-present grin (GRIN) hehe...

katy xox.
