time spent on money

could we reshuffle the deck
that i could impersonate
a joker without the royalty

no crown no gleam
no shine no sheen

we are all of the same height now,
and i am bound to the same crowd;
the same rush hour,

within identical minutes.

yet i feel they would be better spent
than the ones i have now.
for money cannot buy more time;

yet only the rich do,
they can afford a clock.
who is the one more pressed?

the one who counts in seconds,
and not moments.
