Of Seasons

Original Version from The Holy Bible, Ecclesiates III
Additional Verses from The Divine Ryeness

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

A time to say "It's ok, no worries!",
And a time to say "You know what, forget it.
It's a shame I even asked you to do this.
I mean, what the hell was I thinking?
If your boss wasn't on leave, the task should've been accomplished by now.
But have you accomplished anything?
Did you even act on your task?
I don't think so.
Because until now, you have no idea what I am talking about.
You know why?
I know why!
Because you are inefficient and incompetent."

Today is the season for the latter.
