More Hours . . .

On and on flow the hours
Like rolling waves upon the sea
And like so many and so varied flowers
Each one some nectar for the bee

We're keeping tabs and writing numbers
Logging each minute in the book
We have a choice to
Either dread the counting
Or see the forest if we look

Store the knowledge
Hoard the wisdom
Take the years
And just run like crazy
Party’s only
What you make it
Make it into the
Best you can

There’s no protection from the power
Generated everyday
The blazing lights shine
From each lofty tower
To illuminate the way

Things that never occur to you
In the spring
Become clear with each
Passing season

All options must be on the table
All points of view be understood
And if you don’t do ev’ry thing you’re able
Make sure you do those which are good
