The Clock


Bill Stage

There is this clock
in this hospital we
Suddenly in here

glanced at the clock
and watched
that strange bird
that lives in the clock.
One day it came out
and shouted at me
murder murder murder.
I'm sure everyone
heard that bird
I hate that clock.
Another day it came out
and yelled you're dead
I've never seen a clock
such as this. Please
someone remove
this clock I wish. Once again
the hour has struck.
Oh he has a new message
cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo
