Mother Nature / Father Time



Mother Nature, Father Time and their steady beat
create tempos for our lives and rhythm to the feet.

Mother Nature, Father Time and their dogged math
create ledgers for our lives and expunge in a bath.

Mother Nature, Father Time and their mighty reign
create edicts for our lives and cause an ego wane.

Mother Nature, Father Time and their model clay
create dramas for our lives and instigate each play.

Mother Nature, Father Time and their innate code
create chances for our lives and set us on the road.

Mother Nature, Father Time and their Holy Grail
create conquests for our lives and balance on a scale.

Mother Nature, Father Time and their perfect truth
create candors for our lives and activate pure couth.

Mother Nature, Father Time and their motley crew
create missions for our lives and stir a witches' brew.
