They say that Time flies when you’re having fun,
but the real reason Time flies is boredom.
If something interesting is being done,
Time will slow down to sluggish minimum.
Do something noteworthy, like speed light-fast
or amass a gravitational sphere,
and Time will dawdle rather than rush past,
as if to find out what’s going on here.
Gravity and Acceleration vie
like spoiled twins for Time’s full attention.
When near these two, Time can no longer fly
and may seem to be held in suspension.
Either your speed or your mass must accrue,
if you would like Time to stand still for you.
