Stop Watch

Stop WatchI made a hole in the future,
made one in the past….
Put a string through it, tied it
and pulled it together…..
Time ceased to exist and
the present disappeared…
But then the time reappeared
it went crazy, it started going in
both directions….
It would run to the past, get lost
and run back into the future and
again get lost….
Since I did not have a present
I did not have much to do…
Work, bills to pay, mortgage, nothing
I watched the idiot go nuts….
Finally I felt bad….
After all there is good time and bad time
You cannot generalize….
So I untied the string and
the past and future moved apart
the present reappeared and
Time normalized and
I started the stop watch
and started running
