Ode to SOON
“Someday SOON” they say with a smile,
As days stack end upon end.
“SOON we’ll be rich” we exclaim with a shout,
Yet it’s rumors once again.
“It’s coming SOON” another one claims,
From somewhere around the net.
“My banker says SOON” a poster states,
Only nothing has happened just yet.
I grow so tired of those four tiny letters,
The S two O’s and the N.
Each time they are uttered my hope slowly dies,
Knowing not when it may end.
One thing’s for certain as the days drag by,
And the rumors stack up to the roof,
I’ll wait here in chat with all of my friends,
Just hoping for some bit of proof.
Someone to confirm that SOON has arrived,
And this torturous waiting can end,
And with triumphant shouts we can all then proclaim
Hot Dang, it’s time to “CASH IN!!!!”
