JUST 24 LINES

Why only 24 lines
How do you tell the times in just 24 lines
Is the word of song so sad that you only bear to read
24 lines
After 24 we are old and a bore
Reading so much can make you sore

How do I describe a tree
Bird in flight
or the sea
In just 24 lines

Commercialism sound bites raised we
Any more is just an impossibility

Feelings flow pages and pages
Explain the pain
Excitement
The insane

But you want only 24 lines
How boring you must be
Such an existence for me
Would be insanity
