11th Hour: Dick Lang's response to sudden change in circumstance.
Definition from Answers.com
n. The latest possible time: turned in the report at the eleventh hour.
Have you experienced an 11th hour event?
Do you have a renewed vigor to accomplish before it is too late?
Since my own 11th hour experience, I have been motivated to accomplish many tasks that would have eluded me in the past.

When they tell you, your trouble is terminal
And that you will soon be all through.
What in the heck do you do about it?
Tell me friend, what do you do?
Go into a tailspin? Swim out to sea?
Run your car off a cliff? Well, that’s not for me!
But if you know, please tell me
What in heck do you do?
If I can just manage to “cool it”
Perhaps later on I will know
What is rational under the circumstance
What and which way to go.
But while I’m in doubt
And can’t see my way
What I think I’ll do is:
Do nothing today.
I’ll just stop awhile and think this thing out!
Now it occurs to me that I may be more free
To enjoy myself in my very own way.
And I won’t give a darn if things don’t get done
I’ll just try to find some kind of fun
(When I’m gone, all will go down the drain anyway.)
So, I’ll try to stay sane (I hope)
Give when I can and live while I live
I’ll try very hard not to act like a “dope”
And I’m sure I will know when it’s time to go
Then ta! Ta! –goodbye- All my love- Adio!
