A Poem reasoning what is Time which stopped
Making Sense when i made It Rhyme
Time is a sausage and thyme is a herb
Time is a doing word but not a verb.
The present divides the future and past,
What could happen next and what happened last.
Black holes, mountain tops or the equator
Force us to make time early or later;
Linear, cyclical, dilation, space,
Pastimes and good times or one moment's grace;
The time of the season or of our lives
Nothing which makes up these things will survive.
Running and passing and ticking on clocks
Metering out evenings with each of its tocks.
We live in a bubble where time is squeak
But you will forget that this time next week.
