Be There In Five If I Survive!

You humans sure get stuck on certain minutes at your sea. Has that ever been noticed by thee? If not then the cat may have lost you already. Don't worry, I'll catch you up as I rhyme steady.

Be home in ten.
Shouted at your den.
You make it in eight,
As you drive through the gate.

Be there in five,
You say at your hive.
You are there in six.
Maybe just for kicks.

See you in fifteen,
You sound so serene.
You are there in nine.
Lying to the feline?

Take me ten minutes to get there.
You lie again at your lair.
Only took you seven.
Is this some decree from Heaven?

Did you fail math?
Brains take a bath?
They come out your ears?
Do you have other number fears?

What happened to four?
Did it go on tour?
Did six get the boot?
Was five just a big brute?

Did eleven run off?
Maybe twelve decided to scoff.
It beats little old me.
Maybe we just can't overwhelm thee.

You have to stay whelmed each day,
So five or ten is all you can say.
Maybe throw in a fifteen.
Hey, you may have to stay home and clean.

You need that extra bit.
Or you could just say umm duck it.
Say you'll be there soon.
Soon equals anything before noon.

You sure jive,
With ten or five.
Neglecting poor nine.
So mean says the feline.

Now do you notice what you do? You all lie at your zoo. You may say five or ten but you usually never get there in that time at your den. Then you make the cat sit and wait. Waiting the cat will always hate. I'll be back in seven though, just so you know. Or would that be at seven the next day? Hey, I have to cause a little dismay. Enjoy ignoring the other numbers in mass, I'll see you in four, three, six, whatever, with my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  15. Or "be there in a minute."
    as if I'm in it to win it.
    It's never one minute
    More like five or ten
    And I say I won't crawl.
    "I'll be there fast and won't stall."
    Truth is, I don't wanna be there at all.

  22. We had a girl at work always late. I asked her why not leave 10 mins sooner than she did. She said it didn't matter because she'd still be late. Like there's some kind of time-vortex she drives into that always makes her ten minutes late to work.
