where has time gone

A tired man sits behind a desk in a tired skyscraper
he is not thinking of anything work-related

in fact he is thinking of last summer when he took the
kids to Disneyland,

where they got to shake Mickey's Hand and rode
the rollercoaster
that was so long ago
the kids are grown up now

Billy has a tattoo and Jenny is just about to get married,
and he wonders where has the time gone and pokes
in his jacket pocket for a slim cigarette.
