Loop-de-Loop (Huitain)

See the original inspiration.

Merry-go-round or loop-de-loop,
Kids’ toy train set or subway line?
When it’s through––if it’s ever through––
Where does it leave you, this Time?
Elusive hours spitefully fly;
The minutes’ hands lead gently on.
The second a second goes by––
Is it renewed, or is it gone?
