The Difference

Delinquents and defaulters all
face the beak at four;
Days are freely handed out--
Seems he has a little store.

Ten for you, and more for me,
The Adjutant's commands;
Seems to me to indicate
Time hangs heavy on his hands.

In hotel de Clink the days
(Billy Khaki understands),
How the long hours crawl away,
Time hangs heavier on my hands.
