How I do love playing with words.

And so the clock is ticking
time flies madly by
dancing in darkness
performing in light.
And what a mad, sad,
rambunctious flight.

Take pity on me
beggars and thiefs
for I have not won
or lost.
I merely sustained
And therefore I am
of my own making

Not so much apologetics
as frenzied frenetic
time traveller
with eyes in the neck.
What a distasteful existance
it has been.
What of today?
What of today?

A poem of search. I really enjoyed reading this.

P.S. - today is what you make of it.

Go out boldly and embrace it.

There will never be another day like today.

Elisabeth, your "plight" is a twenty-first century malaise shared by many. I believe it must be an infectious communicable thing? An entertaining read my friend. May peace and love be with you. Jon Michael

And how I do love reading your play with words! I agree with Felix, the reader can take his own journey through these words.

Many are apathetic today, but most due to the uncertainty of what is yet to come, interesting piece...

Be always safe,

Or is it the words playing with you?

My kind of razz-ma-tazz wordplay. Set 'em up Joe and throw the multi-colored confetti. Take a few choice words, make 'em sorta naughty and in your face and sit back and watch 'em send in the ever-present, ever-ready to boogie, word jazz.

Well done with lots of room for the reader to draw their own response from each verse...well done.
