Busybee me

(enjoy the puns) 

I happen to be a busy bee
always racing with time
since time how it flies for busy bees
Ah wish I could just lasso it
like a cowboy does his horse
and thereby bring it to a standstill! 

And if I don't waste this valuable Time
I think I could buy me some extra time
For time is money it's said
Ah wish I could just catch it
in a nook or a noose
as it flies by at will.

For at this rate the clock is ticking by
like some never exploding time-bomb
while I'm forever running out of time
so I wonder then how still
others just take their time
or be killing time coz they've time to kill! 

For I can't be killing this precious time
I don't have any spare time on my hands
And it is but challenging to make a chum
out of that swinging pendulum
Time is racing, it's outpacing
For me it seems time has never stood still.

Thus I'll merely have to resign to the fact
that I could never ever tie down mr. Time
for time and tide have waited for none
It's never going to cease, that monotonous chime
even when ceases to pen, a poet's quill

If the battery in thy clock stops
other clocks would be working timely still
So if you lag behind and don't make it in time
you can be sure there are others who will.

So I better let my time-old
venerable grandfather clock
go on with its carefree
dutiful but devil-may-care tick tock
Yah, let the time do the talk
and still tell it it's simply brill!

    Wow! Isn't this the truth, chasing time and never having enough of it. Splendid poem!

    It is peculiar how time doesn't seem to move when you're watching the clock and it flies by way too fast when you're engaged in some pleasant endeavor; I wish I could lasso it, as well and make it last at least, another 12 hours a day. Great work.

    I'm back! You don't need to say: (enjoy the puns) because your readers will get them. "Mr.", not "mr.". I like your voice and what you have to say. It's modern and street. I'm, older(58) so i look to you to tell me what I don't know about the new world. If you're not sure of what you want your voice to sound like, I hope you're on your way. A poet's life is a never-ending one of study, reading and learning and striving to be better. I hope you never give up. Thanks for your time.

    Great Puns , it sounds like my life .. Sometimes I wish there were two of me ..

    The puns were great but the thoughts of time were cleverly thought. S. zaynab. Thought provoking take on time. Read it three times fully enjoyed.

    for sure, time waits for no one...you made the puns work wonders, zay!... greeat job... i like your comments on my poem.. huggs!

    Looking for the puns, I have buy/by spare/killing (spear) tied/tide. Am I missing any puns? My take on time is the opposite. The problem with time is that we don't get to kill enough of it. We work endlessly for sustenance and to set up for retirement, which would have been so enjoyable, would our bodies not be worn out.

    Very punny indeed but time, or rather the lack of it, is not funny at all. We all fight that monster clock and few if any win.
  1. Date: 8/7/2017 7:33:00 AM

    Very clever.

    Nice play with words here! :) I liked the lines: others just take their time or be killing time coz they've time to kill! Time is a precious precious commodity and sometimes we misuse is. Those who are wise in time management are those who are successful. Intriguing write!

    What an amazing blank verse poem I enjoyed every verse every stanza it is definitely one for my favorites to be sure. You definitely have a wonderful way with words thank you for calling me to it have a blessed day.

    Hi S. zaynab, I had the Time of my life reading your poem. The last stanza is my favorite. Brilliantly penned, I so enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by my page :)
  1. Date: 8/6/2017 12:11:00 PM

    S.Zaynab, This is a fabulous Blank Verse write. Ah--yes, the old "Time" variable. Time is integral to all we do in our lives. You've handled this walk-thru concerning time and its place in our lives very well. (Recommend, you take a quick read of two poems I've posted in the past that touch on "Time." One is "The Curve of Time," just posted recently and another earlier one called "Moments in God's Cosmic Time.") You might find these of interest. I really like your poem here. Best!!, Gary

    "Ello" - Glad you asked me to pop in and check on your latest poem - "Wow" - It was as if "Time" grabbed me and took me for a ride - The flow - The motion took me faster as it went along till eventually I ended up in front of the "Old Grandfathers Clock and suddenly "Time" for me stood Still - Loved it - Indiana . . . : )

    Great write S. ... Time is something that I think we cannot master, until we are out of time...then (as I believe) we won't even be aware of it:) I have a recent entry about time as well you may enjoy. Have great day

    The way you have woven this piece together, stitched with a poetic thread is commendable. Your poem has a message about time, and delivers it well. Emile.
