Non Sequiturs



Pushing back the hands of time is simple on the clocks
Panting up the mountain climb
is greater on the rocks

Pushing back the hands of time is simple on the clocks
Pinching rates below the prime
is better for the stocks

Pushing back the hands of time is simple on the clocks
Probing facts around the crime
is higher by the blocs

Pushing back the hands of time is simple on the clocks
Placing words before the mime
is clearer in the mocks

Pushing back the hands of time is simple on the clocks
Playing bells ringing the chime
is softer on the shocks

Pushing back the hands of time is simple on the clocks
Parting looks without the stime
is safer with the locks

Pushing back the hands of time is simple on the clocks
Painting stains over the grime
is fresher for the flocks
