By Tikum Mbah Azonga

I wound the clock

But I didn’t spite you

I’m too big for that kind of stuff

I don’t mind stuffed up watches

But when it comes to clocks,

Forget it! Clocks are just odd clowns

If I had to do it again

I’d do it in exactly the same way.

Don’t clocks get on your nerves?

They kill me, simply; they stand me on my head

Not slowly, but quickly like Meja Mwangi

Clocks? No, not again! They sound hollow and out of tune

So beware!

When I’m about, keep them away

Far, far away. Out of harm’s way

Unleash your German shepherd if you like

But don’t show me the clock

Please! I beg you!
