Fools Gold

Catch up on the late, late show
or let it go
it’s all been said before,

waiting for an epiphany?
a cup of tea?
a slice of cake?

take your time
take my time
they
take all the time
all the time.

After
when the lights come on
when the penny drops
and your eyes pop open
what will you be hoping for?
