What If The Day Ran Away by Sam Hamod

What If The Day Ran Away

what if

a day

ran away,

how far would u chase it,

or how would u know,

how to find it

I don’t think a compass

or a GPS would help, nor

would the police know any more,

the FBI, CIA, all would be

dumbfounded

u might ask the cat,

or the dog, to see if they

could smell it, or track it,

perhaps a drone

flying so high, with its sensors

could spot it

from ahigh, at least it would keep it

occupied

so as not to kill anyone at this time

should we get our posse,

all armed, and ganged ready,

take cars and some on foot,

searching for the day

it’s wishes, dreams, cares

and things to do

ah, we must make a plan

to find out why and where

the day ran away

but I’m not sure if we’ll ever  find it
