Never has a way of coming at an increasing rate.

So hurry up and do it now, before it’s too late.

Don’t say, “I’ll never ...,” unless you’re prepared to wait.

Behind all those “Who never ....” at the pearley gate.

Never isn’t infinite, it’s just a long, long time.

The difference between infinity and the time to write this line.

I prefer the twelfth of never, to a long, long time.

It has a poet’s ring of truth to it that comes with the rhyme.

So if you plan to get busy, and never is on your mind.

Just close your mind forever, and never, you will find.
