Victims of Time

Time is heavy on my hands

I’ve heard that said before

It never seems to make demands

While slowly creeping by.

What does one do while waiting

For the future to arrive

You start to think and hating

That time is wasted so.

Perhaps there is a way

To use the time we have

When all the world’s at bay

And we are captive here.

So put your mind to work

And let us roam the world

For everywhere behind us lurk

The keys to future ages.

And now perhaps my time is done

I’ve used it so to pen

Yes, I think, it has been fun

But time is passing on.

    “For everywhere behind us lurk / The keys to future ages” is a fantastic line. I’m so glad you give us these windows onto the work you put your mind to; reading them is always time well spent!
