~~~A Matter of Time~~~
Dying is always a matter of time,
seconds to minutes with a tick of tock,
each hour is punctuated by a chime.
At least a beggar lives without a dime,
so maybe he sleeps on a bed of rocks.
Dying is always a matter of time.
Some are saved by God's grace, so to be kind.
On goes a man's life by the ticking clock,
each hour is punctuated by a chime.
Death can come by night of day, born of crime.
Dark shadows close on him as if to mock.
Dying is always a matter of time.
Swords to slay dragons, death seasons like thyme.
Death crescendos, musical sounds of Bach,
each hour is punctuated by a chime.
Life is sweet like honey and sour of lime.
Death to life, explained mysteries unlocked.
Dying is always a matter of time,
each hour is punctuated by a chime.
French Villanelle
