Auditors

Thieves of time,

Subtle in their art

As a penny passed tween one weight and another

Carefully counterbalanced

So the cogs of the clock turned round

Just so

Cogs kept moving

The giant hour hand

As minutes passed on by

Whilst the second hand, cried

People stared at their time pieces

Trying to get it back

But the clocks in the town hall square

All wailed out of time

Listen up people…in orchestral chimes

The auditors have been in….and committed a crime…

Clock…acrostic

Clock

clock,

long time successor to the sundial

over the years I’ve watched you as guardian of time

closely keeping a cog tooth on each second as it passes by

keep on going, you’re doing a great job.

A Short Piece on Clocks

Container of time

Locking tumblers and cogs

Over days months and years

Cover the movement of hands – hear them tick!

Keeping watch for Father Time as

Sand passes through his timer
