Later Is Better Than Never And Greater Is Better Than Ever – Author Tony Haynes


Later is better than never

And greater is better than ever

To date we’ve

Endeavored as one

Revelators with jobs to get done


Because never won’t

Ever come later

Though better takes time

To be greater

Ever better takes climbs up the wall

Rather later than never at all


To pay reverence

Homage or severance

Allows us to cling to what’s clever

Now is later better than never?


…Or is greater better than ever?


No time like the present to fascinate

Even though we always procrastinate

V l let’s go somehow

Examine the here & the now

Revert to alert, make it work pull the lever…


…Later is better than never

 And greater is better than ever
