Late to a Meeting

Today someone was late to a meeting,
He sent me a message don’t get starting,
I am running a little late about ten minutes,
“Even I have” said he, “unfortunately my limits”,
First, said I, why run late if you can drive,
Thus, you can cut your delay to only the five,
Your coffee will wait have no fear my friend,
You will get here all right; we are on a dead end,
