If you were in charge of Time…



They gave you the keys

To calendars and clocks;

Change them as you please.


You make weeks six days long,

Not seven. You remove Wednesday:

No more hump can’t be wrong.


Just four weekdays per week;

We still have two-day weekends.

Will that give you the time you seek?


Sixty-one weeks in a year,

Instead of fifty-two;

Reason enough to cheer!


Instead of one extra day,

Leap Year, every four years,

You do something different. Yay!


Three out of four years,

You eliminate one Monday.

It’s music to our ears.


The twelve months you keep,

But make each five weeks long;

And make them all thirty days.


When week sixty-one comes,

It doesn’t belong to any month.

It’s time to bang the drums.


The sixty-first week marks the time

For standard holiday vacations.

That’s the way the clock should chime.


Work eight hours per day,

Thirty-two hours per week;

More time for us to play.

Just a Moment

It’s only one moment. What can it matter?

  • All too often, it’s long enough to disrupt the perfect opportunity for a first kiss.
  • In a race, it can make the difference between a gold medal and last place.
  • It’s just enough time to lose that great idea.
  • One moment can determine whether the game-tying shot lands in the basket just in the nick of time or too late.
  • “Excuse me. Can you please spare a moment,” is long enough for an unexpected sales pitch to cost you a good deal of cash.
  • You might wait for it all of your life, while you pass millions of others by.
  • For light, it may make a difference of a million miles.
  • When you’re bored out of your mind, it becomes incredibly long.
  • But when you’re having the time of your life, it’s gone before you know it.
  • That’s all it takes to lose your temper.
  • On the way to the emergency room, it can make the difference between life and death.
  • In an apocalyptic novel, it will save the entire planet and all of civilization.
  • A moment could be that critical stage between too soon and too late.
  • It’s short enough to forget, yet long enough to savor.

A moment. So short. Yet sometimes so long.

Some of those moments are the most precious of our lives.
