In the Blink of an Eye

.

.

Damn! this is sad,

now that Old Ed 

is dead.

.

What is worse

is the curse,

    which is bad.

.

In the blink of an eye,

we each of us die.

.

Then the last

of the past

    passes by.

.

And nobody said

that Old Ed was dead –

.

not a word

had I heard,

but I know why.

.

And now,

    all alone,

.

I am next

on the throne.

.

Oh, I knew

it would come,

one day soon.

.

All along

it was something

    I’d known.

.

Then sooner

    or latter,

maybe sooner is better,

if it’s sooner for me,

   let it be…what will be.

.

Kinetic correction

    all over.

.

When the young

    take control

.

over all that gets old,

.

and the plans

changes hands

    that is cold.

.

The familiar grows on

from the father thru son –

.

it’s a genetic connection

    going on.

.

It’s then what is surgent,

    was so damned urgent,

it’s then

when it all then

    gets gone.

.

The moment

    to memory

        a moment avers,

.

there begins a descent

    in reverse.

.

In the blink of an eye,

    it all passes by;

.

and begins

    like at the end

        of this verse.

.
