I watched the clock
But have always been late.
They are taking over the world.
Should it be my concern?
Things are changing.
Increased population means
A greater frequency of mutation.
The myths we celebrate have a modern touch:
What I do now is set
Them all fifteen minutes fast.
It’s no damned good though,
Another failure .
I always cheat.
Up in the hills, in someone’s garage,
Some young geniuses are building a chip
That internalized, will start an un-ignorable alarm.
One problem will be solved.
Black-eyed Susans, though, have built in timers.
