The Treachery of the Swiss


Everywhere I go
I never fail to see
the two accusing hands
of the clock outstretched toward me.

From time to time I've torn them off
and left the clock-face bare
But then I find I can't abide
the dial's empty stare.

And so I damn the Swiss
(and their awful mortal lock)
that wretched race that gave the world
both Calvin and the Clock.

Yes, but what about that poor wretch, Hobbs, eh?

Those pesky Swedes have at least that as a redeeming quality.
