Time In In Time - Triple Timing Pantomiming Ripple Rhyme
Time spins headlong, helter-skelter, alpha omega its hum,
Innate energy refocussed - hocus-pocus drawing blind -
Merging, surging, fresh emerging each dimension is assigned
Extra frequencies as harmonies seek equilibrium
INto emptiness exploding, vacuum voices Lethe-lined.
IN a twinkling of an eyelid, with an inkling of the mind,
Tortoise Time of able fable, snide greed, pride, speed, overcome.
Is it justice? Is it balance? Those ahead dread dead behind,
Making room through swift disposals for proposals less confined,
Express need for further testing, jesting, questing, inquest dumb.
Through blueprint life redraws core DNA
Integrates fresh factors and evolves,
Makes much of little, constant challenge solves.
Entry/exit ice fire roundelay,
Turns 'right' 'wrong' topsy-turvy as the Way
Is spun from none to one while time revolves,
Moons' fate, soon late creates here, there dissolves,
Eternity seems tease, frees dream-flight fey.
Time spurns prestige, turns cycle score,
ME, you, them trapped in karmic maw.
