Days of Future Past (141 words = 324-183)
The blast of a car horn startles me. I get up and whistle "time to get away' like I do each day and put on another pot as I prepare my evening work. These are the hours most convenient for my morning obsessed associates in La La Land and night-owl-hoots of Hong Kong. Here, the night-workers scurry to their jobs as day-workers trudge home, their energy wound down. They're drained. Not me! I'm feeling perky. Much less sore than before. Maybe I'll sit on the balcony and work while the sunset serenades me.

I boil coffee in the ibrik and add two lumps of sugar. Not that I need the boost

I watch restaurants fill up. Soon people will sit in the hush of the park as this day cools off. Lamplights will come on.

I wait for the sunset.

Part II: (Evening) Time To Get Away

[Verse 2]
Evening has come to pass
The time of day doesn't last
Evening, has earned its place today
I'm tired of working away

[Verse 3]
Working, living, it brings
Only way to have those things
Toiling has born too many tears,
Turn 'round all those past years

[Hook]
Evening time to get away
Evening time to get away
Evening time to get away
'Til next day

[Verse 4]
Live all you people, you can see where you're at
It doesn't really hurt you, so it can't be bad

[Instrumental Interlude]
