The Hourglass

Choices, Choices 

Now, then, later, NOW!!! 

Time doth not well with thee 


Is this a fork I see before me? 

At the road side, which I take? 

Both so the same 


Which is right 

Which is wrong 

Perhaps the coin shall tell 


Cards can't fell  

But can see and touch 

make a person mad 


The hourglass goes 

not with sand, but tears 

or blood 


Be warned, stranger

Be bold,  it seems slow 

Beware it cruelly swift 


Choices given little mercy 

when Time stands before 

Forever or never
