Time - Poem by Dushan Jurkovic

Time never stops it keeps on ticking
The clock seems to keep on tricking
One minute you're here and the next you're dust
As soon as you stop you will start to rust
You can't turn back time but why would you want to?
You're just wasting more time than you're gaining
There is no use as it's already raining
The time keeper says you are in debt
You owe him about a twenty year set
What is the time my good man?
You have no more time you've kicked the can.
