Next Christmas 2020

Fast or slow
Slow it goes
“No hurry no worry”
is my mantra standing in a line that moves too slow
“Three’s a crowd” is hollered on the intercom
for those who hate to wait or visit with a stranger
Strangers are my favorite
new potential friends
and waiting makes that room to grow
It’ll be next Christmas 2020 ‘for we know it
and the kids will be in college
that are two now
in time that seems like only days
have passed us by
And everybody dies in the blink of eyes
So it is best to
try to go slow
and forfeit junk that wastes any of it
That time that can’t be gotten back
if we go too fast.
