207. I wasted time

Foolishly I wasted time.
Time now wastes me cheerfully.

Unconditionally I wasted time.
Time now wastes me sovereignly.

I wasted time
Time was heavily
Hanging on me,
  My impotent shoulders.

Time wastes me
Time knows that I am
An unimportant member,
A beggar in the universal family of beggars.
