ROCK THE CLOCK
(3/7/15)


time
is a human
construct

still
we rue
or rejoice
the government's
biannual manipulation
of our scheduled
daylight

the sundial
doesn't register
a change

the squirrel
doesn't sense
our sudden
shift

the Sequoyah
is quite
oblivious
to such legislative
matters

yet many
will spend
a bleary-eyed Monday
reiterating
the loss

the gain

the darkness

the light

out of sorts
and generally
disagreeable

like
a fallen child
who only cries
if noticed

it is best
to ignore
them

Tuesday
will quickly
come

and their
usual complaints
will return
