What Do You Do With Your 'Day And Night'?


I live the day to dream the night
As I dream the night to live the day

As I gain the night to pain the day
I give the day to earn the night
As I earn the night to give the day
Life is all about time
As time is all about day and night...

No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
