Time Bomb Ticking
by Jason Tomlinson

I’m playing with fire I’m a time bomb ticking
these aren’t exactly the circumstances I’d be picking
but they picked me for better or for worse
it doesn’t seem like a blessing but much more a curse
you see my allergies managed to find me tonight
now I’m wheezing hacking and not feeling quite right
so I took some Benadryl a few minutes ago
and now I’m starting to go real slow
to the point where I may fall asleep at any time
and be unable to finish this rhyme
I trust you’ll understand – that I’m not being cheap
but I hope to finish this before I fall asleeeee
