Fast or Slow?  

 

The time goes slow or the time flies by

You’re either bored or you’re occupied

If you complain “Nothing to do!”

Then read a book or learn Kung Fu

 

If you’re going too fast and need a break

Then say “time out” please for my sake

Watch the second hand move on your watch

Crack your knuckles or play hop-scotch

 

You don’t always need to be out front

So slow down, pull over then stop and grunt

The ‘stop’ will halt the auto’s drama

The grunts decrease your risk of trauma

 

This life is full of slows and fasts

The secret is to do what lasts

If you always speed the gas runs out

If you crawl you may garble the route

 

Is there an answer to my dilemma?

The stressed and tense take an enema

If you’re tired and bored the answer’s easy

Ride a roller-coaster till the stomach’s queasy!
