Michel, Quoist From Staffan Linder. The Increasing Scarcity of Time.
New York: Columbia University Press, 1970

Good-by Sir, excuse me, I haven’t time.

I’ll come back, I can’t wait, I haven’t time.
I must end this letter—I haven’t time.
I’d love to help you, but I haven’t time
I can’t accept, having no time.
I can’t think, I can’t read, I’m swamped, I haven’t time
I’d like to pray, but I haven’t time.
