Hollow Promises

My grass is getting very high –

I think it’s time to mow.

I promise that I’ll get to it –

sometime before the snow.

I promise I will marry you –

but I don’t want to gush.

We get along the way things are –

so really what’s the rush?

I know that I should play with him –

I promise to some day.

That kid of mine don’t understand –

that stuff gets in the way.

I have some pounds I need to lose –

I promise to real soon.

But not today and that’s for sure –

got pizza on for noon.

What good are hollow promises –

no reason to be heard.

It they are made with no intent –

to ever keep your word?
