The Change of Time

Mother Nature certainly has it right
and all her creations heartily agree
so why is it humans change with force
the Time, and subject it on you and me?

Now Iím up before Iím ready
willing spirit, but legs unsteady;
when tonight Iíll fall apart at eight
be in bed by nine, can you relate?

Iíd rather our own bodiesí clocks
follow the natural rhythm it brings,
and I would take it to the bank with you
it would absolve insanity, and other things.

Eating schedules are off, just ask the cows
who get milked one hour later, and how
their bags must ache for lack of release,
for if they could talk, they would say PLEASE...

Follow Natureís natural walk through life,
end human suffering, and some strife,
and go to bed with the stars and moon as we do
quit trying to save time, youíre saving it for who?

Instead of being ten minutes late all of the time, I am now fifty minutes early. So it isnt all bad. Enjoyed the poem.

From the cows point of view, I guess your right. I enjoyed the read.

Well done, Sunshine... and cows aren't the only ones with schedules... my kitties now wake me an hour before the alarm clock... it's breakfast time for their tummies no matter what the clock says! LOL

Wonderful poem, Sunshine! My feelings exactly! But, alas, if I were to follow my natural clock, I'd sleep every day 'till...oh...about 9 or 10 and get to work around...oh...12 or 1 and be ready to go home by around...oh....3 or 4!! 'Twould simply be paradise! At least for me! Again, great poem!
