Passage of Time (Poem)

Truthful adagio is sought out, but only to find stuffiness,

Being witty with falsities throughout, stirs up the mind agog with silliness,

Just like the bafflegab spout, illustrating the virtues of property uprightness,

Befuddling one through evasiveness callouts, as they play their chords of ugliness,

The land cannot be given to the beanpole clout, yesteryear is full of dustiness,

Travelling time, past, present and future
Travelling time, past, present and future | Source

Unfounded rumours dismount to spread to the canoodling people that interfere through their puffiness,

Separating relatives’ accounts, through sweet chimerical moments of deprecation,

Colossal innuendos of disobedience surmount to those that rule with toughness

Revealing sheer sprouts, Master dunderheads of the deepest

Need to erect measures that flout protection in a safe yet ebullient easiness,


Lowered defences incurs touts of, festooned actions of danger comeliness,

The powerless with clout, foofaraws their bosses and their holiness,

Persevering with hope and anticipation throughout, even though all said is deceptively lacking trustiness,

The Talisman’s mount, is sought for clarity in readiness,

Thereby, the powerless are not to be discounted as a noodge of weakness

      Yes. This is so true. Time tells what tomorrow holds for us. This simply means you never know what time has in store for you as a living being.
