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
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!
