If Clocks Were Abolished

If Clocks Were Abolished
If clocks were abolished, then perhaps we’d see
A slow return to our humanity.
The “Go-go-go!” that lashes like a whip
Would then be gone.  Our time-cards, we could rip.

Of course, the world has nights and days and seasons.
For rushing, each may have, at times, his reasons.
But every clever thing has its abuse.
And clocks have long been tools that tyrants use.
