Three by M.E./Rhymes of the Times
On the defend-
I wish the story I was reading didn’t have to end.
1 hour, 12 minutes
Filled with concern-
For the book I am reading is overdue, as far as it’s return.
18 hours, 37 minutes
To stand in a library aisle-
And look around for a while.
1 day, 18 hours
First came the details, of the crime-
And as we read further, it turned into dedicated solving time.
2 days, 18 hours
The book was not thrown away-
So that it could be read, on another day.
3 days, 18 hours
To read, a dim light, a comfortable spot-
Is where I am now, and liking it a lot.
4 days, 18 hours
And so the story was at an end-
With no real solutions, with many problems to mend.
5 days, 18 hours
