Clocks will go as they are set… – Thomas Otway.

…but man, irregular man, is never constant, never certain.


So when a friend disappoints you, don’t grieve,
we’re inconsistent human beings,
our constant loyalty is to people and things that satisfy our needs
and to things that massage our ego;


So when the clock chirms for us
to show consistency to a cause
at a point, our reward is the joy of others,
we choose another path,
that promises all rewards for us alone.
