Clock Wise

     In advance I say…You’re welcome.. For what, you might ask? Well, today I am feeling less blabbery, (is that a word?) than is my usual. I’m up against the “clock” so to speak. Therefore, you are welcome.. Short and sweet will be the lead-in and short, will be the poem.

Have a top-shelf Tuesday everyone,

Jake.

CLOCK WISE

 The hand around,

the face, did race,

while the minutes,

slipped away.

*

 But, the power,

of the hour,

in the end,

did steal, the day.
