Not Enough Time To connect To dissect The inner dialogue and outer space Rubbing sticking flesh That bleeds That reaps the harvest And Feeds The shark The struggling dolphins killed by unaware tuna fishermen The hungry caterpillar The firefly in the jar Soon someone will catch the butterfly But Children get fat Now From too much fast food And not enough exercise Too much time spent staring at a screen Gros (fat in French) Gross The amount made, but never taken home Intelligence Never wasted now That the chance to share with the world Exists Round every corner awaits a new discovery, but there is Not Enough Time

The first stanzas are so mind craking and fish-digging @.@ I love them, and the others too, very precise in terms of expression and perception of reality; we need to catch the tidal 1's and control them; thanks for the experience =D
