Waking up
Another day older
But today it’s another year older
How did this trip around the sun
go so much faster this time?

Why is there never a speed limit sign
when you really need one?

I would be happy to pull over
to stop, even
should some cosmic cop
with a radar gun
tell me to slow down
but alas,
I think he’s telling the world to go

even faster instead.
