Does time ever get you fustrated?
There's lots of reasons to hate it
Slips by when good times are had
Slows down when things are bad
We set alarms and press snooze
Thats 5 minutes a day you lose
If you waste it you never get it back
Cross the law and time is stacked
Prison terms that never end
Watch it send you round the bend
They say it waits for no one
Not a truer word is ever sung
Is it late if your counting too long?
Or early if your clock is wrong?
Give yourself a deadline for tasks
Try and race the time so fast
Most commonly hated is age
Ask how old makes some rage
I always give myself half hour
To write a poem before I shower
It could be a case of OCD
Or a challenge set just for me
I never tend to cross that line
Oh heck I've ran out of ....
