Stop all the clocks? Surely you jest
They’re in everything, I can cover them at best.
The phone is turned off, this I can do
Even if it’s the first it’s been dark from new.

So now here we sit, apart from all life
The silence is total, it cuts like a knife.
Are you sure I can’t check the phone for a sec?
I promise to avert my eyes from the time
Here’s a bonus line, since that didn’t rhyme.

Yes. Trying to read The Dream of Gerontius brings new meaning to redemptive suffering.

Did it not put a spell on you?

That bit of housekeeping taken care of, I'm here for my my birthday drink. Who's buying?

I will purchase your cocktail for you. We have a lot in common. I cannot tell a lie either.


No, I have not been poured into this. I am a solid, not a liquid. Why do you ask?

Of late I have found the long stretch between breakfast and lunch to be insupportable without further repast. And so to brunch.
