No time like the present was said to me
Ok you mean now, you mean..?
Time waits for no man was said to me
So I’m late you mean?
Seize the time was yelled at me
Held my lil ears, “Don’t know what you mean?”
These are dangerous times, was whispered
Perked up, “Hope I don’t get injured?”
Hard to talk about time to a child
Young minds catapult meaning so wild
Lose those platitudes remember their style
