Biding Time*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr



DXXXVIII ~> Biding Time*

DXXXVIII ~> Biding Time*
(Opus538 ~> Biding Time)
Biding time searching for elusive prime;
Mimics the dog barking at the wrong tree.
It proves mistaking the nature of time
Like trickling down feeding tributary
Weighing the stream into the estuary:
Time is one continuum behemoth;
Waiting for it is mentally uncouth!
Nor the tick-tick-tock of the stately clock
Suspended athwart the smoldering hearth
Calibrate the commotion in the block
In synch with the rotation of the earth
Parleyed by bulging equatorial girth:
Biding time to set sailing with the tide
Modulates the heartbeat for a smooth ride!
Watching the opposite gender parade,
To showcase their most vaunted attributes;
Serves your favorite kind of escapade
Until your sense of judgment convolutes
To introduce delirious absolutes:
Biding time indulges futility;
Verging on self-induced senility!
