There’s all those cliché songs about time:
Time like a clock, precious
Time after time
Time keeps on ticking…
And at first it seems impossibly far
And you fear you’ll never catch up
And then you want to hold onto that time
But before long it slips away.
Then those “well meaning” busybodies
you want to throttle when they
tell you to appreciate time
because it goes too fast…
They’re just twittering
because they can’t wait
until you join them on the other side
where the sand’s settling on the
Bottom of the hourglass.
But you can laugh
Bitterly a little bit longer
Because your time isn’t up yet…
tick, tick, tick, tick….
