the real lion of march

If bored or just sick of before
Resume life and pick a locked door
Of the fitting room
Where the now can resume 
With hats to try you never wore

Seconds pass as time marches on
Clocks can't stop this phenomenon
There's likely no force
To undo life's past course
Even with help from old Obi-Wan

Dear Duke, Your poem eloquently shows the struggle of navigating life's rhythms. It's embracing our uniqueness demands seeking out unconventional paths. Your well chosen words evoke a sense of liberation, urging us to explore new possibilities and unlock doors to undiscovered facets of ourselves. This is a well crafted poem with such a thought-provoking piece that speaks to the essence of personal evolution. Wonderfully done, my friend, - Blessings Daniel

pick a lock, …hats you never wore before. “Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me…” as he tries to control, to know what is kept from him…time marches on and as we cannot change our past, we can find new things, good things to enjoy.

great meter on these. I wish i could get my hands on the machine that's causing the Mandela affects.Those guys are changing words in the Bible, so time may pass on, but the evil are manipulating it!

Very interesting Duke.. As always your limericks encourages a spirit of curiosity, resilience, and openness to new experiences. It reminds us that life is a journey filled with surprises and opportunities for growth, and that sometimes, all it takes is the courage to pick a locked door and try on a new hat to discover the richness of the present moment.

Great limericks. This one is terrific. I always enjoy them.

I like the idea of trying another hat once in a while. It seems everyone draws their own blueprint to some extent. Hopefully they can realize that others can be different as much as their selves.

I really like your choice of images for this one, Duke. It screams, many choices and so little time. With retirement they'll be new opportunities and new challenges. Everyone seems to deal with it different in my experience and those I know closely that have retired. My advice, enjoy your new freedom, but don't try to change everything at once, my friend.

Never tried a fedora. Hey, let's live a little, huh? Nice one a Duke

Great Limerick dear friend Duke. I think the central idea is about individuality and the need to find one's own path in life rather than conforming to societal norms. The importance of embracing one's uniqueness and not being afraid to march to the beat of a different drum. Your use of incredible metaphor of marching to the beat of a different drum to convey the idea of individuality and non-conformity. I like the "old Obi-Wan" from the Star Wars franchise.
