Don Aslett

It’s those extra ordinary folks

Who do five times their share

Carry triple the load of others

And still have time to spare



They run a flexible schedule

Always crowding more projects in

Leaving a trail of accomplishment 

Everywhere they’ve been


Their drive is seldom for money

Nor do they do it for fame

Wanting to prove life is earnest

Not just pleasure to gain



Entrepreneur or workaholic?

They treat work as if it’s play

Often in their presence

It’s easy to feel in the way



Ever pursuing accomplishment

They appear intoxicated

They really are not loved,

Only admired and tolerated



Often their very presence

Rates a respectable sigh

Some people voice a polite relief

When doers leave, or die



There’s fraternal bond with fellow doers

A kinship and a style

Where they meet and socialize

In that second mile.
