what use have we now
for clocks?
racy ticks ‘n random tocks
aimless walks along empty docks
timed dryers
spittin’ out single socks
while novice gardeners free
newly dug beds of rocks
& tired single moms gaze helplessly
on dwindling food stocks
as the Jesus man in City Centre
keeps rantin’ from his soapbox
& the rest of us binge on
Hulu & Netflix
safe on our sofas
behind three door locks
awaiting a vaccine
to save us from the Covid pox
that continues to throw up
to lives once consumed
with ticks & tocks
