Killing Time ©

by Rowena M Love
Troon, Scotland
1998

Everyone knows that killing time's a crime.

The duty watch clock the culprit -
Don't need a second glance
To identify the chronic offender.

They'll punish GBH of GMT;
Prosecute the temporal violators;
Convict the time lag.

Waster! Butcher!
What is a minute's massacre
Or second's slaughter to you?

Time and again, the deed's been done.
This time, you're on the run -
A tempus fugitive.
