A Question Of Time
(3/13/2021)


Brother Bollocks
has been accused
throughout his life
of wasting
valuable time

but
time

as well as
all math

science

language

are all
just simply
our feeble
mortal descriptions
of what
we sense

of what
we feel

so he
is not too
convinced
of what
value
can actually
be assessed
to any such
subjective

and they can
only be
subjective

judgement
criteria

objectivity
is a myth

but that
is exactly
how his efforts
are evaluated

subjectively
by others
in their objective
self-delusions

Brother Bollocks
has learned
to smile

to nod
in silence

as if accepting
their exhortations
to action

then looking
down
to his naked
wrist

tells them
that he must
hurry

away
