Oh sweet second, where have you gone?
Your quick life passes, just a pawn.
Oh minor minute, sing your sweet song.
Alone you’re so short, together you’re long.
Oh harsh hour, I watch you go by.
One long rotation, then I must say goodbye.
Oh damn day, will you ever end?
I want to get home, I need a friend.
Oh yawning year, you all blur together.
After so many, it’s time to cut my tether.
Oh tremendous time, so fast so slow.
Will we ever be free of you? We do not know.
