Time is running out .                                   
                       I am not an hourglass .
I don’t turn over and the sand stays in.
                   I am like a sponge that soaks
until drenched,                                  too sodden
to sop              I drip              excess                         unless                         squeezed.
Watch closely.        See knowledge          drain dribble           flush               out       like           water through a sieve      porous           holy?               holey?
Globules of   largess block openings,    retention of   unnecessary           material                  
clog         my        arteries.
Time                    is                      running                           out.
