[Poem] My Futile Rhyme…A Study Of Time

My Futile Rhyme...A Study Of Time
My Futile Rhyme...A Study Of Time

What if we never learnt to measure time?

If men never reached their prime?

If enacting laws was the biggest crime?

If Bombs resonated like wind chime?

And Death tasted like a dash of lime?

I might have rewarded you with a dime,

If only you cared to read my futile rhyme!

What if Whales could survive on a drop of lime?

If factories jingled like a wind chime?

If inventing machines was a heinous crime?

If animals were at their prime?

And life began before the creation of time?

Did you really read my rhyme?

Because I’ve just lost the dime!
