Tom Time

by muags

When the time comes
you wonder why he didn’t come sooner

but you realize
time waits for no man

except for Tom Waits
Tom will always wait

so the waves
bash the beach

and pound the pebbles
into sand

it isn’t hard to understand
time waits for no man

Tom waits on the sand
with pebbles in his hand

wondering what time it is
but he doesn’t hesitate

he just waits
because he is Tom

and time waits for no man
not even Tom
