it is a childish act of communal arrogance
to think we can change what time it is
simply by agreeing to do so
the sun will be nonplussed in its rising
and setting, no stars will be dismayed
the moon will not be late
we have given our folly a name that smacks
of accomplishment: daylight saving time
when we have saved nothing
we make ourselves weary trying to tell time
when time is not even listening
we’re talking to ourselves
I so agree!
The older I get, the less I care about clocks telling me what time it is. It’s my body that needs to be saving time for as much daylight as possible.
No one ever said it better!
AMEN – what kate fite said!
