11 of 12 given words:
thing flash swift  
roves (wandering with no specific destination)
constant wild moves rings chain straight order

a thing of the past
a flash of memory
came swiftly and fast
roves in a hurry

constant wild moves
rings true of one on edge
staying very much aloof 
precariously on a ledge

on fringes of a madness 
consequence of chain of events
lurking from across the wilderness
straight out feeling all tensed

such is the scenario today
disorganized with no leisure
now utterly out of play
not of the old order and pleasure
