Intro: this is in response to the comments made on my "It's St Val's Day".

What is at fault with you and me
and most of our society
is that our life does hurry past
just far too fast: but why must we?

It is a world of pace and haste,
With short-cut terms like Ďcut and pasteí

It is a world of cut and thrust,
one not given to care and trust.

Itís a world of cash and profit:
I donít have to be part of it!

The world goes on, it has no time:
I donít have to; the choice is mine.

Around me, yes, the speed donít cease;
within me yet, I may find peace.
If I take time to stand and stare
I may just here learn how to care.

Donít let this world into itís mould
squeeze you until you loose your hold
on things that are of lasting worth;
for love and life are things of earth.

I liked this, and it's a clever response to the comments.

I still don't agree with you though :)
