As partners Time & People synchronize steps
through seasons four with four winds breezin’ through
in backdrops of e’er-changin’ horizons and landscapes.
Time leads, of course, as evidenced by Daylight Saving Time
movin’ in, changin’ and rearrangin’ hours and sky light,
all previously geared to humans’ scheduled timepieces.
Confused humans wake up gazin’ at an early-brightenin’ sky.
Am I late? Am I late? How did I do this? How did I oversleep?
They hurriedly glance at their clocks to clarify the feel of fog.
Chicago’s hit resounds, “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?”
Durin’ the song, steps shuffle to catch up with Time’s new rhythms.
Once more there’s an attempt to synchronize with Time’s loyal lead.
“Hey, Time, want to stay awhile?”
“No, got to go – daylight, nightlight,
it’s what I do. Toodle-oo. Toodle-oo.”
