impatience regnant

another time another kind of choice
time and the world are wholly out of joint
not one of us can raise a cheery voice
and none of us can still recall the point

reel out the line you cannot see the end
infinity's a word for just such times
the one who smiles is never just a friend
but one who contemplates much harsher climes

at times we wonder just why we have come
to do our jobs and meet our daily goals
we aren't required to understand the sum
nor will we disappear into dark holes

truth is we ask so little from each day
we've left behind all that we had to say
