Were , I would , there was more time
That scant commodity
To give more thought to every rhyme
A a little more of me

And in so doing gain as well
From earnest effort spent
As much more enjoyment
As time allowed has sent

If such could be unmeasured
There is much which we could learn
Undiscovered treasures
Inner fires that still burn

But lo the hands that rule the pen
Are merciless and quick
And our thoughts are meted out by those
Who's movements clockwise tick

The face that stares from written words
Oft' times is not our own
But that which rules each one of us
And controls what can be shown

So we cherish stolen moments
Writing furtively
Ignoring barbs and torments
And looking inward see

The clockface mocks our efforts
Putting limits on our prose
And in time we come to realize
Yes , we're one of those

Hey, Doc - If you can steal a moment to write it, I can steal one to tell you I enjoyed reading it...

I say that we get rid of all the clocks and just write, write, write 'till we drop!!!
I enjoyed this sooooooo much! I have so often wanted to shoot that clock!

Time is such a fickle thing, too long, too short, not enough and too often precious moments pass without time for appreciation. I'm glad you found the time to write this poem that I appreciate.
