Who Knows What Time It Is? - Poem by David Taylor

Does a clock know what time it is? He asked.

No.

And can it tell you the right time?

It might, but most likely it will not be exactly right
and it could be completely wrong.

Actually, he said, in almost all cases
a clock that has stopped is more often exactly right
than one that is moving.

Now, he asked,
do you think you know who you are?

    One of only a few of life's elements that we have absolutely no control over...Astute penning, David!
