"Time is the thief you cannot banish." Phyllis McGinley, Writer, 1905 - 1978
Oh, thief of life- your robber name is Time; you never blink or take a simple pause. Through Spring and Summer, Fall, and Wintertime, this endless movement has no glitches, flaws. If only we could change your ticktock laws- slow down warp speed to stretch our days and years; extend each moment's joy before it veers. The time from birth to death short-changes life; take pity on your passengers' true fears. Oh, thief of life- please let half-times run rife. November 13, 2020
