Something for Nothing

Something for Nothing

A Poem by ettorney

Or 4 cliches

There is a time and place for everything.

Now is the time

Here is the place

Everything is waiting for action.

Yet there is never time for anything.

Never is enough time


Never is forever.

In my time I will do something.

Or, perhaps I will do nothing.

I will never do everything.

If I do something, it may be for nothing

Doing nothing will not get me anything


In this time

In this place

Doing something is better than nothing.
