Last night Internet connections surged
with the latest greatest shocking hoax.
Time awakens late—and slow.
Looks back—into a black hole.
“I can’t remember when” says Time,
I’ve been so totally wwwwasted.
Time spaces and crashes on the couch—
Zoning out to kitten videos and old Twilight Zones.
People worldwide tap watches and complain
about the achingly slow-moving hours today,
the longest day, you might say,
in unrecorded history.
