Fast Enough – Poetry Saturday

Fast Enough by Brian Satterlee

Time’s not moving by that clock on the wall
Telephone’s ringing, gotta pick up this call
At the end of the day, don’t feel nothing at all
It’s not happening fast enough

Work day’s over, yet another day
My check’s on Friday, more money made
For my creditors to take, not a dime is saved
It’s not happening fast enough

I started a business this year, it’s starting to make money
Give me a couple more, it won’t even be funny
Maybe I’ll even move to someplace sunny
It’s just not happening fast enough

Another day starting and I’m at the coffee pot
Another cold morning, at least the coffee’s hot
I just want to go, to someplace that I’m not
If it just would happen faster, it’s not fast enough

I started a business this year, it’s starting to make money
Give me a couple more, it won’t even be funny
Maybe I’ll even move to someplace sunny
It’s just not happening fast enough
