A Wonder in the Land

Time for the lighter side of life. I believe this poem is self-explanatory.

A Wonder in the Land

I have a lot in common with a rabbit from Wonderland---
Constantly I check my watch, hoping others will understand.
The words he exclaimed, I call my own as I strive to not be late,
My world is full of craziness, a total frenzied state.

Life has picked up speed it seems, I'm on an inside track---
Always pushing forward, there is no turning back.
On and on I hurry, glancing at the time,
Wondering if sanity will again be mine.

A day-planner is my life-line, missing an obligation is my dread,
The phrase that haunts me most these days: "OFF WITH THAT WOMAN'S HEAD!"

Thanks, Tristi. =) That poem proved to be right on target this week---life continually seems to pick up speed . . . or maybe I'm just getting slower. ;)
