 It'll just take a minute

Just a moment of your time

You won't notice - who does?

Come on - it won't cost a dime!

That's what they tell you....

But the truth is really that

Just is just a word

That hides the very fact

That everything costs something

That time is never free

That 'just' is an illusion

In a land of make- believe

Because just when you are thinking

That you've got lots of time

Just when you start to believe

You'll write the perfect line

Just when you have settled in

To count up all the clover

Yes, just then is just about the time

You's all over

So please do not be fooled my friend

By words like  'just'....or 'only'

And you will find, in your own mind

Just enough time to

As an editor, I try to cut every "just" I find in a manuscript. Most can go and not hurt the text at all!
