Joker's One Way Train

Joker's One Way Train

Smilingly hidden cloaked in time's unforgiving shadow
While the coaches rush further, more hours to swallow

Inside the splendour and music match the good wine
None feels as the Joker of all feasts on their time

Stop the madness pushed on by greed, need and urge
Look for others who discovered the Joker's old merge

Make time to let go of the trap to succeed at all cost
The next coaches are destined for stations called lost

Slow down the ones who's hearts and smiles you share
Show them how time swallows success in his snare

Ask first how long the ride to success will be
Ask how many minutes with dear ones you will not see...
