It might snow

Rationalization:  we all do it.  Pretty regularly even.  Sometimes it*s only when we hear ourselves say things out loud that we catch it.  Sometimes... not even then.

We all do it.
My favorite excuse
Was the client
Who could not show up today
Because the weatherman said
It might snow
We all do it.
It sounds perfectly reasonable
In our heads.
It*s only when
It comes out of our mouths;
We hear it landing with a thud
In someone else*s ears.
Good reasons
Why these calories today
Won*t matter tomorrow,
Splendid reasons why
Self-serving things
Are really in the best interest
Of the other.
We all do it.
It might snow tomorrow
After all.
It might snow.
