Perplexity

Helping hand

Just

Do not

Understand it!

I am a helper,

I love to help,

But why doesn’t everyone?

Why are some selfish,

Unwilling to give a helping hand?

I just don’t understand it at all!

They are missing out on so very much.

Always in Demand

Someone’s always watching me,
Or racing to beat me.
It seems they can’t live without me!
In the morning I wake them
When they tell me to,
Yet then they often get angry
And hit me!
People are always saying I move too fast,
Yet if I stop, they get upset!
I really don’t understand the logic of it all,
But then, I’m just a clock!
