Cuckoo clock. 

The day came when the cuckoo clock 

repairman came to collect the bird

that stop launching in and out of its box 

to say hello on the hour every hour 

as fashion sense changed like the day

lost or gained pulling the wrong chain 

Wouldn’t solve the progressive March 

of the digitalis age speeding by the 

River winding it way through the 

perfumed Countryside.
