How is time like a tree?
For an answer,
contemplate each seed

How is time like a clock?
Of the movement of each hand,
take close stock

How is time like sand?
Over many aeons span
ask a rock

Ron: Why doesn't this dude quit poetry and focus on art?
Linda: Huh? Why doesn't this dude quit art and simply breathe?
Lis: Huh? Isn't it better to bypass it all and reach a state of natural non-breathing?
