Fixin’ To Git ‘Er Done
Folks in Texas say “fixin’ to”
when describing intent.
“I was fixin’ to fix the leaky faucet
when my wife got ‘er done.”
I’ve been fixin’ to write a poem
about folks who procrastinate.
I maybe could after I file our tax returns,
provided I get around to that by April 15th.
That’s what I’m fixin’ to do anyway.
Or else an extension.
Of course, I might put it off a spell.
I have not yet commenced
to actually take it on.
But don’t worry,
I am fixin’ to do just that.
