Father Time

Time is it on my side?
Slow time can grow real pain.
No gain, lots of confusion.
Even delusion.
Is it father times fault?
No crimes committed by father time.
Only time going slow.
When you get older.
You wish you were young again.
Something that father time can't do, make you young again.
Would it be a crime to be young again?
The clock chimes 6 times.
Crimes of the heart can be felt.
Dealt 5 jokers.
The fool on the hill.
Made me stand still.
Father time commended time to march on.
Normal.
As it was.
