Cease The Day

throw away all the watches 
light the clocks on fire 
shred all the schedules 
time is a bloody liar 

needles and numbers on the wall
show anything but the truth 
right on time – never so
what ought to happen – never would 

resenting those who breathe 
it befriends the lifeless,
Ozymandias became history
urns embellish the present. 


A comment on ‘Ozymandias’ by P.B Shelly and ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’ by John Keats.
