1 CLOCKS



Clocks-

Who gave them the right

To count away the seconds

To speed us towards deadlines

And drain our euphoria?

Who gave them the right to be rapid?

**

Who gave them the right

To draw out seconds so they last for hours

To fly when you want them to creep

but crawl when you want them to hurry?

Who gave them to right to lag?

**

Who gave them the right

To click-clock, tick-tock

Drive you mad with rhythm

But continue marching forwards?

Who gave them the right to be steady?

**

Who gave them the right

To always BE right?

Everyone’s wrong at one point or another…

But, no, not these- and if they are, it’s no fault of their own.

Who gave them the right to be perfect?
