If I was the president

A journey; a step at a time, to the other side 
Reconditioning to conform to conformity, foundations 
Adjustments to be made to the system, fit for purpose 

Clogs, titches and stitches here and there, therefore 
A few teething problems to be resolved, henceforth 
Careful with the local water, the first hurdle on route   

No man walks from the tropics, barefoot  
To the Himalayan and climbs Everest, no joke  
Without breaking a sweat, least of his worries 

Clocks get physically wind, to redefine 
To fall in line with the local norm 
An hour here, an hour there 

Fingers pointing to directions needed 
With meaning to correspond, synchronize 
 Then clocks, clocks, are fine tuned to tick away 

Bricks are laid, organised on structure 
Brick on brick, to elevate 
To form castles and be a kings domain 

Essentially change would have to be made 
And so is said of all conditions in life 
To be successful in establishing ones own post 


  1. I'm not sure I'd want the job of President, impossible to make anyone happy most days. I got to agree with you about life being driven by clocks and outside forces though, I hate being driven by other people's schedules. Lots of wisdom in this!

  2. But would you give him change?

  3. I don't think I want the same change as the President wants since he wants trillions and I don't want to give him any more. But it is funny to see pictures of when he first came into office and now to see his hair has pretty much turned to gray. Not a job I would want. And what would we do without clocks except maybe slow down and enjoy life a little bit more.

    Thanks for sharing such a great poem for this weeks Theme Thursday.

    God bless.
