More Than Distance

“How did it get so late so soon?”
Dr. Seuss

Do you hear the quiet tick

Of the seconds passing by;

Then the tock accompanying

Unheard, or worse, unheeded.

Their race, begun with hope

At the glorious birth of a soul,

Slowly turn to frantic

And helpless madness;

As they will soon cease

Counting those hours passed

And turn to the more somber task

Of counting the minutes till they stop.

Irony is writing about wasted time as I shamelessly waste time
