In the past, a clock set fast
did make for being on time;
for one could tell
and two as well
that punctual was sublime!
It was on or near this date many decades ago that Davey H did bad deeds;
he recalled things he’d rather not know;
regret so supersedes!
Hence, having revisited such locale as was the ‘where’ town in context,
he needed not ponder the ‘when’;
it was merely ‘back then’.
Now, as in NOT ‘back then’, ants crawled upon this hardpan soil just as effortlessly as they did so long ago. That much had not changed.
