So Little Time

hourglass running fast

The nanosecond is so very small.
If you stop to think of it,
You won't see it at all.

clock hands moving fast

But nanosecond has shorter cousins.
To make just a single nano,
Takes picos by the dozens.

If picoseconds aren't brief enough,
To satisfy your short timing span.
Squeekosecond; it's over before it began.

clock running backwards

William's Whimsical Words:

If time is money, and money is the root of all evil; is time evil?
