impatient immortality

some times
yesterday still
then is dead
gone by when
rarely was
once and never shall shortly
be but wait
soon as now is over
after is next
ever before later now
always soon
in a trice
twice becomes thrice becomes
last will be seldom
yet nonce creeps
to last
often is now

kill the article in line 15 for rhythm and need.

Decent work, with near inversions a double/triple speak, forward and backward.

Last night my son asked me a question that I almost could've answered if I'd already read this poem.

I usually don't like this style--no punctuation--but I do like this one.
