I saw a man the other day,
The oddest one I ever met.
His eyes connected to a point,
His face in smile of sour regret.

He held a clock is his right hand
And stared at it, but was away.
Just as I took a closer look,
I saw it ran the other way.

Not to the right. Yes, to the left!
A time-machine by all its means
Trying to turn the hands of clocks,
It was portraying our defeat.


  1. it was portraying our defeat...great close on this...and yes we can not beat time it comes for each of us, in its own...

  2. nicely done and thanks for sharing your words

  3. Alas, running backwards will not undo the past. Nice write.
