Six Clocks

In a corner of the living room I sit in silence writing Silent but for sounds of typing And of three clocks ticking

A wall clock in the family room And dining room wall, too A third clock ticking on the shelf, For only two won't do

And three more silent clocks there are All within my view On both microwave and stove And small stereo, too

Six clocks tick and tick away And cast their timely spell Why we need so many clocks Only time will tell
