"You want it now, this little task?"
"I couldn’t possibly!”
"Just wait a minute, give me time,"
"A bit bogged down, you see."
An hour passes, "No can do!"
As sixty minutes fly;
"My list is longer, time is short"
"I'm really gonna try!"
Tomorrow comes, it's been a day,
The hours ... twenty-four;
"That cannot be! Where did time go?"
"I need and want some more!"
Now seven days, "It's been a week?"
"Your task's still on my list!"
As I run out the door and wonder,
Just what else I've missed.
"It's been 4 weeks? That cannot be!"
"Oh my, how time has flown!";
I look down at my little list,
And sigh, for it has grown.
OK, one year has come and gone,
"I know 12 months have passed" ...
"But can't you wait a little more?"
"One minute's all I ask!"
