As long as noodles take to cook
As long as matches can be fought
As long as people have to live
Without the air they need to breathe
A lot can happen in that time
A hundred eighty beats
In hearts that fight for life each day
Who gets to eat?
Who gets to win?
Who gets to live?
We need to change the way we hink
A moment’s time is not as short
As what we think it is
Inspired by watching noodles boil for breakfast
