PoetryBits: You think you have time

P

Unwashed plates under my bed at 10am

Till when shall we cry
Tilted tales told in tiny time
Time! Time! Time! Time!
We think we have time, we have not

In coats of silk they drive class
Dines done with dirty dimes
Dimes! Dimes! Dimes! Dimes!
They think they have dimes, they have crimes

A mother cries, a graduate mourns
A woman dies, a man starves
Food! Drugs! Jobs! Roads!
We think we have leaders, we have goats

Now I say this, I say it once
I was waiting for tomorrow but today looks old
Now! Now! Now! Now!
I thought I had time, I worked not!

And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful. 3:104
