Batteries not included,

for these hands-of-time.

A snapshot of a moment,

that long since faded,

yet time unabaited,

because I forgot to wind it.

What it took to find it,

was a reminder in the mirror,

didn't make it any clearer.

Several score older,

and many more o're my shoulder.

The Einstein illusion,

confronting my face,

without a trace,

while 'watching' and embarrasing,

the whole human race.

Such a disgrace.
