Days of future past (195 words = 385-190)
I work as hard as I can in the mornings but by lunch time I'm ready for the meet-and-greet down at the meat market.

Well, that's what we call the string of cafes where old men drink tea and play backgammon all day. The rhythm of traffic emits a low hum in the background while the cacophony of business men trying to not look busy drowns it out. Today I want to scream out "Look at the old men! Slow down, you have time. I found out I have time!" But it sounds too cliche and they wouldn't pick up the allusion to a song written before they were born... nor me... not that that matters. So I joined in, stiff joints and all, hoping nobody noticed or worse decide to slap me on the back. I avoided anyone who seemed a tad too tipsy or happy.

I didn't see any of my friends. A couple had been at the party last night. Probably sleeping in. I did speak to an amusing man who had a proposal to pitch. He reminded me of someone from my past... We made a dinner date for tomorrow.

I see it all through my window it seems
Never failing, like millions of bees
Pull out the drawer, no time to be won
Only to do, what can be done?

Peak hour, peak hour, peak hour

Minds are subject to what should be done
Problem solved, time cannot be won
One hour a day, one hour a night
She's trying to be, ooh
Home, in full flight

Peak hour, peak hour, peak hour

It makes me want to run out
And tell them, they've got time
Take a step back out and look in
I've found out, I've got time

Minds are subject to what should be done
Problem solved, time cannot be won
One hour a day, one hour a night
She's trying to be, ooh
Home, in full flight

Peak hour, peak hour, peak hour
