River of Life/Buying Time

She’s going to:
Try to float
Along the river of life
Rather than:
Resist every twist
Avoid every turn
And try to stem the flow

He’s fighting so hard
Against the onslaught of time
It is his daily obsession
With Botox and wheatgrass
The gym
Which he hates with a passion
Trying to buy time on credit
She wonders why
When he rarely enjoys
The time he’s actually been given
