The Count

Other people

Other lives

the jingle jangle of bells that toll for me

over and over again

an alarm clock annoyance

wake up wake up

The jig is up

The jig is down

and the deciding factor enters in alone

shouting at you without a sound

about lions and lambs and where time went

a valuable currency already spent

If you read this today, feed someone locally for me will you? Drop off a non perishable food item at the food bank nearest you and consider yourself hugged. Thank you!
