Are we supposed to use it in a sentance, or add another word?

susurrus: a whispering or rustling sound.

listen to the susurrus, it is the sand in the hourglass of our mortality, trickling away and reminding us that our time on earth is limited, and will soon pass away.



Hows that for morbid 'off the cuff' poetry?

Cp time allows you to be as late as you want to be. Or better yet not show up at all. until payday that is.

At least that is how that is how Colored People time was explained to me by one of my previous colored employees. He talked about how hard of a worker so and so was but he operates on cp time.
