Do you have a minute to spare buddy?
How about 59 seconds of your time?
If I can write it in a minute, will you
read it and tell me in under two?
Change lanes, change channels.
Follow up or follow through.
Table for five with visible
seating for four please.
Where have the tones and test patterns gone?
Where is the static man, I miss the sound!
Shhhhhhhhhhhh…turn that off it’s too late
for them to broadcast. We are gonna be
busted so bad if Mom wakes up now!
Time. Time. Time. Time.
If you used all you had
instead of lamenting
the moments you lost
how would the world
have changed by now?
Sound bytes. Popcorn bits.
Gritty stuck in your teeth
or so sticky sweet you’ll
be sick tomorrow for sure.
Get the main point, thank you.
I have no time for a story,
just give me the take-away
message so I can get on
with rushing about looking
busy for those who whorship
the godling of static treadmills.
Each stanza here done in sixty seconds or less. I’m hoping you enjoyed them for longer than five minutes! Linking up at dVerse Poets. Thanks Brian for another great bartending.
