The celebrity of death

The speedy collapse of time

Do quake every memory lane

Each moment exasperatingly

Die into the labyrinth of history

Then each day delivering

Another baby day – a new time

The new hour and minute

Minutely a second

Each with piercing eyes

Drill into the debris of the bygone

The coffered stones of the past

They do pick up bones and hairs

In a sarcastic note

Indeed in a savage ambition

The old times told and retold

Made golden eternal

And abundantly sold

At huge galloping phase,

Enlarging the price tags…
