"Time" (in 5 variations)       [dohas]

Time is a spendthrift miser
generous yet unwilling
here an abundant geyser
there in a draught that's killing

Time is a surreal river
running from unseen places
bathe and enjoy the shiver
writing it soon erases

Time is a loaded question
Russian roulette it favors
in its despotic bastion
everyone slaves and labors

Time is a gangland contract
no one's allowed to leave it
everything grows so compact
soon no one's left to grieve it

Time is a nonsense story
told with a nanny's gusto
fabulous till she's weary
work of an unsung maestro
