Poem -

THE NEARLY MAN

The nearly man is almost but not quite there 
Doesn't complete his tasks and doesn't care
He starts well and good progress is made 
The finishing line is still a way off I'm afraid

The nearly man gets distracted with the task in hand
One could say he buries his head in the sand 
Sure the nearly man tries his best each time 
If he finished the task there wouldn't be this rhyme

The nearly man has now finished his day 
Can't finish what he starts I have to say 
Poor man looks almost dead on his feet 
What would he be like if the task was complete ?
