An Ode to the Goddess Time

by Kris Todi

A world of steady flowing rhyme?
A fancy of the goddess Time!
A light within asunder driven –
By the tragedy Existence!
Laughing, living hollow lives do we proclaim:
“Time is with us!” all the same,
But the goddess keeps on going,
Unaffected by our woeing.
Knowing, going, never slowing –
Till it’s knocking on our doors!
The hotel that is existence,
Though it does not need a pittance,
Time has ordered our remittance!
Off we go forevermore.
Take my words and seek no other:
Time is ticking, by the hour –
Keep on living life with vigour!
Only this, and nothing more.
