the reason i never seem to get anything accomplished
overdose

my fingertips are very rebellious.
 1
i think, personally, it is because they are so spoiled.
 2
 
 
after all, who could blame them
 3
for resisting the cold plastic of a keyboard,
 4
or the dry rasp of paper,
 5
when they are used to spending all of their free time
 6
cruising the hills and valleys of your body?
 7
 
 
perhaps they are on a sabotage mission,
 8
eager to relieve me of any responsibility
 9
which might possibly infringe
 10
on the aforementioned "free time".
 11
i never seem to finish anything anymore!
 12
 
 
overall,
 13
i think i ought to reach some sort of compromise, and soon,
 14
because
