And The Days Are Not Full Enough

And the days are not full enough
And the nights are not full enough
And life slips by like a field mouse
      Not shaking the grass

the accent bein in the last stanza - the human life bein short and unfulfilled and yet nothing changes..
A short statement on the shortness of life.
