Obsessions,time and space and Einstein’s  power.

Nightmares full of clocks without their dials
Obsessions,time and space and Einstein’s errors
Feeling I will soon  face scornful trials
As armed police arrive to scan my files
Nightmares full of useless clocks undialled
Without the face there is no plangent smile
Eyeless as in Gaza,   flung by  terror
Nightmares full of clocks without their dials
Obsessions,time and space and Einstein’s  power.

Moderation is a pleasant state


We  keep ourselves  afloat by  simple rules
Each country keeps a common time and date
Forget this and they’ll feel you are a fool

We need our clocks, we need a brief schedule
We need a phone or watch so we’re not late
We  keep ourselves  afloat by  simple rules

However  we may get obsessed and cruel
Moderation is a pleasant state
Forget this and you’ll feel you are a fool

We do not live in prison,unlike school
We need our inch of freedom,life’s not fate
We  keep ourselves  afloat by  simple rules

Don’t  be a wooden puppet or a tool
The frame, the rules allow us to create
Forget this and you’ll feel you are a fool

Flex the rules, it;s easy to stagnate
Ask for pardon,  love will be your mate
We  keep ourselves  afloat by  simple rules
Ignore this and you’ll learn you are a fool
