I stopped the world


I humbly asked the world, so big and blue

to stay the coming, the coming of morrow

bidding time, needing time, to embrace this sorrow

my plea has gone unheeded – with an aye or a no.

I tried stopping the beat of the world. Hanging out there did not leave me good/ http://www.123rf.com










The world did not stop, for me nor for you

went about its business, with its usual ado

inhaled the smoke of the bus, just passed through

Hah, the next train won’t be – till half past two. πŸ˜‰

Hey, what’s the smoke for, huh?/ animatorsketchbook.blogspot.com
