The One-Hour-Photo Life

memories are fading fast
of kings in a distant land,
remembrance of glory past
is swept away
like water into sand.

the rat race of today
strips bare the memories
and soft kisses of long ago
as the seconds tick away.

man lives life in a hamster wheel;
always moving forward - going nowhere fast.
beauty nor peace can be found
in this cold hamster cage
for little remains for the modern age.

So what does this leave for the future?

pot pies and cold ramein noodles,
soap operas and
late night talk shows.
the "1-hour-photo" life
of the businessman

Are YOU happy?
