Time is fair and forgiving,
An equal opportunity employer,
A carefully balanced scale of hours, minutes and seconds,
In which days can be wasted and weeks recovered.
Time is an entity scientists cannot adjust,
A plaything the rich cannot afford,
A reward the poor cannot attain,
So how did it come to be that time is in fact what we spend?
Time is all-pervading, a vortex of imprisonment,
Time is the persevering beat of the drum,
Time pounds inevitably on the door of life,
Time is the birth, the living and the death.
