Clocks 2

If broken clocks tell the right time twice in a day,

did big boys do it and run away?

From the cricket voice that kept Pinocchio straight

or, like the rabbit, was it just too late

to escape the date with the light-footed queen?

Is the bear you built vulnerable at the seam?

If the stuffing comes out, will you push it back in?

Sew it? Mend it? Will it go in the bin?

It's savagely unhelpful that 6 might be 9

What's the point in clocks if you can't tell the time?
