What difference does a moment make?

A Second in Time


By Michael Dean Cook 1-27-21


I had a schedule,

My day was packed full.


But chance things happened,

Odd things were unplanned.


Silly old me sees,

I’ve forgotten my keys.


Back in I hurry,

Grab keys in a flurry.


Damned old age to blame,

Irked at this old game.


On the road at last,

Late but going fast.


A little behind,

Where I wish to be.


Best I reckoned,

I’m late a second.


Wreckage ahead,

Bloody body dead.


A second of time,

The body’d be mine.
