Catapults in the crypt

For as long as I can be
I’ll be as strong as I can be
which could be a long time.

Before the construct,
before we got chucked
on the rubbish heap
time was time and
was not cheap,
now
we waste it
basing our waste
on the mountains of
minutes in the far distant
moments we have yet to
arrive at.

Well,
I’m nearly there and
no refunds here
this is the terminal point.
