A dVerse Theory That Is Rather Eerie!

Today for dVerse we will converse in the conspiracy theory talk. Come now, don't balk. It is not about aliens and such. Those you have heard too much. This is one you do not know that I have uncovered at my show.

It's the conspiracy of the clock,
With its annoying tick tock.
The thing is there,
That you are aware.

But why you ask?
To keep you on task?
That is smoke and a mirror.
Things need to be clearer.

It was invented by a fool,
That thought it was cool,
To make you sit and watch,
Until you could throw back the scotch.

Meaning when work was through.
But much more came due.
Something unexpected,
That has been neglected.

I bet you are thinking now.
This will really wow.
It is quite the embrace,
Right in front of your face.

Lost in thought,
About my plot?
Fingers and toes,
Ready to come to blows?

See, they've got to you,
With the clock in view.
Before it would just pop in.
No longer at your bin.

Now instead,
You scratch your head,
Trying to figure it out.
Come now, don't pout.

I will soon reveal all,
About the clock on the wall.
To enlighten you,
At your zoo.

It lowers your IQ,
Each clock at your zoo.
You can't count past twelve.
Now this conspiracy I shelve.

See, how they have gotten to thee? You are stuck from one to twelve each day. Unless in the military, then go away. You get double that, counting to twenty four makes you really smart at your mat. So bury the clocks in the grass so your brain can grow in mass and not be filled with gas, like what comes out my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  4. I have never thought of time as a man made creation
    But you're right, what a revelation
    I would like to go a week without ever looking at the time or a clock
    But that wouldn't go over well at my job, I'd get fired and have to live under a rock

  6. It's good and expected for one to be punctual
    To arrive before the appointed time is essential
    If there is no clock

  10. Instead of the military 24-hour clock, I'd like to see some smartass invent a 36-hour clock which marks off the days a day and a half at a time. Can you imagine the confusion? "Is it Friday yet?" "No, it's just Thursday and a half!" Sheer pandemonium.

  36. Totally profound.

    My military dad brought us up using military time, so when I learned real time in school, I told him how I figured out the difference. Subtract ten, then two. I didn't have to keep all that in my head anymore. He honestly didn't understand what I was getting at, and still uses military time to this day.

    Pacific Islanders don't do clocks, they go by island time. They seem very happy. Just also very late.
