    Hurry,
    No waiting...
    Sitter got another gig
    There's no more delaying
    No one but yourself is there
    To do your bidding

    And live...
    The life we're living

    Frantic you worry
    Aint no baby' daddy down
    No workers employing
    Delegated tasks right now

    Select your fate pal
    Your breakdown's
    Coming around

    She left,
    That hurt...
    Child support is killing me

    Divorced and worst
    Jailer in pursuit of me

    And those misgivings
    We're living,
    Had better
    Slow Down ~

    At times, things do move at a fast pace ...
    sometimes we have to move at their speed or...
    rope um and hold um down.
    nice piece poet.

    Sometimes if you don't slow things down, you will break down, simple as that. I totally get what you're saying poet, and I liked the way that you said it. Flow on.
