It’s been a few weeks. Time, it gets away.
People demand. Progeny needs.
Time is a commodity best handed out with droppers.
One drop here, two there.
Waste not, want not.
But I do waste. And I definitely want.
“Part of the problem”.
Obligation’s umbilical cord.
At least we’re here,
Not starving, not withering.
Pull the stars down to the lower shelf.
