I have always been early. In these lines I put myself in analysis.

 

 
I have a habit that’s very bad
had it since I was a lad.
I never want to show up late
and I share this habit with my mate.
 
You never know when you’ll be delayed
walking in like a big parade
because there was traffic trouble
from a road filled with trash and rubble.
 
I don’t want to receive the hate
of those people who have to wait
for me so they can start the meeting
or even worse – to start their eating.
 
I get there early so I won’t worry
rushing around in a great big hurry
only to arrive the very first
so I won’t be the one that’s cursed.
 
Through the years I’ve wasted much time
feeling like the victim of a crime
because I’ve sat there for hours hating
the fact that I’m the one who’s waiting.

At least it's the fact of waiting you hate, and not the people who make you wait!
btw, I make Bill wait a lot. Time is an enigma to me. I always have plenty of time, but suddenly it's the last minute and there we are--him waiting, me rushing around. Is there any cure?
Hopefully, your poem came "just in time" for me to heed.

Always have I done this myself, I hate people who roll in at the last minute, especially at a big meal like Thanksgiving or like that...I mean they know for months beforehand that they are coming to that meal, why wait till the very last second to make stops on the way to buy stuff or stuffing...;-) ed
