A Matter of Time


It’s time to call it a day

No one has much to say

At this stupid o’clock hour

Common sense lost its power

  It’s hard to set the pace

When the clock has no face

Father time has no emotion

A pendulum in constant motion

  Yet time deserves some credit

To allow us great works of merit

But that’s only if we let it

    A faceless clock reminded me of another one — the Apocalypse Clock, which was showing 2 minutes to midnight, to indicate the nuclear danger. Recently, they have moved the minute hand ahead by 30 seconds. The human mind is so conditioned to the idea of being bound by clocks n calendars.

      Yes, we are bound to clocks, which the never-ending swing of the pendulum make our lives go by too fast.

    I find it well to get up at 4:30 a.m., as I am an ease-into-the-day type of person.

      I feel the same way. During the years I worked, I would get up at 4:30 but I didn’t have to be at work until 7:00. It’s a lot less stressful to ease into the day, IMO.
