There is no time
Amid the anguish and the blame
Amid the anger and the shame
Between the laughter and the fun
Between the torture and the pun
There is no time.
The time when antelopes ran free
The time when gorillas had trees
The time when elephants had room
The time when whales were not doomed
Has past and gone.
What is gone cannot come back
What is past is history
When time runs out
There is no room
When room runs out there is no space
For even mystery.
