There is an entity that proves elusive to all of us

In the time it takes you to read this, more of it passes in a blur;

slips through our hands like a grease-covered enemy

We try in vain to grab it, to maybe slow it down,

just a little, but the eel-like slimy bastard eludes

our grasp, continues to pass at unbelievable speeds,

and there's nothing we can do to slow it;

and it's mean!  Yes, that saber-toothed dagger-beast

bites you in the ass as it rushes by; I submit

that it doesn't fight fair; it's a hit-and-run away

cowardly bastard!  Time, why won't you come out

and fight like a man?
