No Time

"No Time" - Image shows a clock on a wall. It has a white face, black numbers and hands, the hands indicate 5:50.

Waiting too long at traffic lights–
It’s no delight.
People too slow,
They need to go.

The light turns green, thank God, at last!
Step on the gas.
I’m out of sight,
It’s time to write.

Sixty seconds left on the clock;
Life’s run amok.
I don’t have time,
To end this rhyme.
