Time Release Poems should be swallowed one or two at a time and absorbed slowly in order to facilitate release of little wisdoms in the mind. They may be taken anytime and are useful in personal expressions of pith, rage and even love.
Whitewash comes in many colours
Busy is the man with many hats
and nothing to put them on
No matter which way you turn
there's always something you're not facing
There is no peace for the punching bag
True marksmen see beyond guns
Too much time is wasted in the making of clocks
Every little ruler wants a l3th inch
There is no camouflage like a good philosophy
One wind moves many flags
Daylight respects no borders
Cars-- people fleeing in their problems
Clothes make the man-- poor
The teacher is the lesson
You cannot kiss ass
and kick it too.
Shit doesn't care about flies
