The rich man in his castle
The poor man at his gate
They all wanted one thing
But for them, it was far too late
The Lawyer in his chambers
The Maiden in her room
Both sought the same gift each time
But alas it was nigh pass noon.
The prime minister in his parliament
The pauper in her home
Thought forever they could keep it
But in an instance, it was gone!
Time is not like money,
Which can be stored each day.
As it comes to you, my friend
Use it right away!!
