How can we buy time,

if time is money

and we have so much of it

that’s free?


How can we have all the time in the world,

if time waits

for no one?


It dulls words

not bound by paper

or laced in song.


with calculated clips.


Lachesis snuffs out the string

starting at the start

before she hands the scissors

to an excited Atropos.


Time is selfish and greedy.

Especially to those who don’t heed it’s presence.

Those who kill time

instead of those who make time.


The time is ripe –

is now –

to have the time of our lives

until the end.

The end of time.
