“I’ll Think About It Tomorrow”

Just a little poem inspired by the memorable character of Scarlett O’Hara in “Gone With The Wind.” Reblogged from my poetry site.


Miss Scarlett O’Hara, you started this mess.
I’ve followed your pattern in times of distress.
I’ve made up my mind to refuse to face facts,
To put off ’til tomorrow decisions to act.
When things don’t go my way, I simply surmise
That somehow tomorrow will bring bluer skies.
“I’ll worry about it tomorrow,” I say,
And simply refuse to deal with it today.
Unfortunately, this plan has lots of holes.
The most obvious one is what everyone knows:
Putting off ’til tomorrow ev’ry problem is dumb;
Postponement is failure, for tomorrow never comes.

    1. It’s one of the all-time favorite classic movies in the U.S. Based on a novel by Georgia author Margaret Mitchell, it tells an amazingly accurate story of the civil war and reconstruction period. It had the most amazing cinematography of its day and the kind of expert acting that only some of those legendary stars were capable of. It was originally released in 1939 and was an immediate box-office hit. After its normal run time, the studio closed it up and never allowed it to be shown in regular theaters across the nation again until its 50th anniversary. Then the response was, once again, overwhelming. In the past 20 years, the movie has been made available on VHS and CD, so most people who are interested in it have seen it, but there was still a special 75th anniversary celebration in 2014. One of the main stars and one of the child stars were still living and able to reminisce about making the movie. Margaret Mitchell died before she was able to write a sequel or any other novels after Gone With The Wind. Then several years ago, another author was commissioned by one of the major U.S. publishers to write a sequel. It was horrible and a terrible insult to Mitchell’s lovely work.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
