Time can tear down a building or destroy a woman’s face
Hours are like diamonds, don’t let them waste
Time waits for no one, no favours has he
Time waits for no one, and he won’t wait for me
I don’t think i’ve told you about Time have i? I know i promised to but things get in the way you see. There’s holidays and seals and engagements and dressed to buy. But now i feel like i should tell you, give you a warning….don’t mess with Time.
Did you realise that it has a capital ‘T’? It’s important that is, don’t forget, it’s Time. If you forget that, then you’re going to get yourself in some trouble. So, first things first… Time, this is him, Old Father Time:
Have you noticed how it goes…. you have a date after work, you’re excited about it but the day just seems to drag and drag…a minute seems like half an hour and the day seems never ending? Or on the other hand, you have lots to do, you’re so busy but the day flies by and you only get half of it done?
That’s Time playing with you that is. He knows you’re looking forward to something and he stretches the hours out. The more you want it to be 5 o’clock… the longer 2 o’clock and 3 o’clock will last. The more you think about it and watch the clock, the slower it will go, like slow motion television.
When you talk to your friend and say ‘Today is going so slowly” he gives a little chuckle and is pleased with his work.
You could of course try and trick Time by pretending that there’s nothing you’re looking forward to….. or try and act busy so that he speeds things up rather than slows them down, but you know he will catch you out. He’ll team up with Traffic or Signal Failure and you’ll get stuck on the bus and tube on your way to the pub.
So my little children, don’t play with Time, becasue he’s more sneaky than you.
