A LESSON ON TIME
Time on my hands
Time to spare
Time’s not enough but,
its time to share.
Its time I make a run for it.
Its time I make a move.
This time I’ll time this well
So you listen as I read my poem ‘Time’
Its time you stopped what you are doing
As I give you a lesson on time
For time not gained
Is time lost
Time is hard to hold onto
so I warn you this time
you better take your time.
For an ignorance of time
Is deemed a crime
Time yourself and become great in life
For time well learnt
Is time well spent
The wise man yells
“Now you know the time, right?”
“Don’t know what u mean but time would tell”, I reply
“A stitch in time”, he says
Grudgingly I fill the blank lines
“Would save nine”
Only thinking to myself
If only I can grab a bottle of wine
“My friend, stop wasting your time”, he sputters.
“You don’t know my time like I do”, I say
“You slime, mind yourself this time around
and get yourself a figurine to talk to.
If you say time one more time there,
this time I would not take it lightly.
For you just stand here wasting my time
or do you think I can regain lost time.
for I would only allow you
Nine minutes of my time.
Good day say Sir,
I have got not time to spare
Cos’ time is precious and for it I care.”
“Ah”, he says
“Time would be our judge,
and time would tell our attained sores,
For the next time you yell at an old man
Time you just might lose I swear.”
