Ticker Tapeworm

Each moment that is will not last
The present is soon in the past
The older one gets
the more one regrets
and passes the time very fast

The Past is dead, and has no resurrection; but the Future is endowed with such a life, that it lives to us even in anticipation. The Past is, in many things, the foe of mankind; the Future is, in all things, our friend. In the Past is no hope; The Future is both hope and fruition. The Past is the text-book of tyrants; the Future is the Bible of the Free. Those who are solely governed by the Past stand like Lot’s wife, crystallized in the act of looking backward, and forever incapable of looking before. -Herman Melville, lousy limericist

your limerwrecks start my day
the effect-I cannot say-
but one thing I know
as today goes to show
I just cannot stay away

This one might have been a little heavy first thing in the morning. Make sure you have your coffee first.
