Doing Time

The Rev. Canon Dr. James M. McPherson


To-morrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,

creeps in this petty pace; set here by Life

for life to make the best of what’s to hand,

we mostly knuckle down and serve our time;

yet some there are so institutionalised

they’re pleased to live inside, and inside die;

while others fret and chafe for life outside.
