Drive and drive but you can't get away
But what if the distance needed a break?

You travel and travel but it stays in place
Covering the world but can not move at pace

It wishes it could write or learn in normal life
have a family of Millimeters and go on Union strike

It wishes of love and the ability to breath
but it's only a unit of measurement you see

for it cannot be anything much more
then a unit of math and metric lore...
