Time Do you know the rules of time? Well, it will take a while Please wait for me to start 11:59 separates day from night Midnight is morning with A gray moon in the black sky And afternoon start at 12:01 pm Every second counts All 60 of them especially when you say “I’ll just be a minute” And all 1440 of them in the 24 hour day Especially on your alarm That goes off just in time for you to wake up on time To make breakfast Shower or bathe And to get dressed Take your phone Your keys Your wallet And your extra coffee To start the day If you’re late You can’t do anything about it Don’t let it get to your head You’ll look like a fool Especially on a stormy day Every early bird has woken up late I know you’re not a bird You get the idea Or do you? Will you lend me some time to explain it Because we will have to leave mathematics and go to English Okay then A nod of your head Is not convincing Okay next time So long Tootles Marckincia Jean 11/09/19 Free verse
