    Friday Poetry Corner

    Ho - Alf !
    Aye - whit ?
    are ye talking to me or chewin' a brick ?

    Listen - all the clocks in the city
    Began to whirr and chime:
    'O let not Time deceive you,
    You cannot conquer Time.

    'In the burrows of the Nightmare
    Where Justice naked is,
    Time watches from the shadow
    And coughs when you would kiss.

    'In headaches and in worry
    Vaguely life leaks away,
    And Time will have his fancy
    To-morrow or to-day.

    It was late, late in the evening,
    The lovers they were gone;
    The clocks had ceased their chiming,
    And the deep river ran on.

    I have to be careful not to Preach
    I cant pretend that I can Teach
    And yet - Ive lived your futures out
    By pounding stages like a clown
    And on the streets the broken glass
    And bloody faces slowly pass
    The sirens and empty streets
    They all belong to me you know
