Daily missive for Thursday the 3rd of September.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Thursday the 3rd of September.

Time is a constant.
It is not elastic, pliable like plastic
It marks change as it occurs
At a given rate.
It does not accelerate or degenerate
Wind down or mess around
With you on its hands
Not knowing whether to sit or stand
Bored with itself
Left on a shelf
Worrying about lonely hearts
And sell by dates
Meals for one off paper plates
But when seen as a concept
You might just accept
It is not merely a norm or a given,
Although mobile
It is not tactile or virile
And not easily driven
But it can be watched,
Marked and checked,
Come to an untimely end
Stop when you least expect it.
It can move your feet
Make you march to a different beat.
Change the tempo,
Quick quick slow.
Feel the syncopation
Ruin a reputation.
It is more than a dance
It puts the mood
In romance.
Makes Sinatra swing
And whatever
Else it may bring,
The truth is
That time is the beginning
And ending of
