the short end

Who are you looking at?

Who are you looking at? (Photo credit: yewenyi)

no time for fun
there are things to get done
no time for flowers
dealing with nuclear super powers

no time for drinks
or finding missing links
no time for games
or disoriented dizzy dames

no time for us
and no time to fuss
no time to waste
exploring outer space

no time to listen to the words
to the song of the birds
no time to listen to the sound
of the world slowly spinning round

we’re all running on borrowed time
paying for an ancient crime
hoping to get what we’re due
but I fear we all got the short end, too

    Sometimes people do seem to be in a hurry, as if life doesn’t fly by fast enough already. Come to think of it, sorry but I don’t have any time to leave a comment for this poem, now.
