time awareness

what is time

I don’t know

something then
is different now

if the same
then it must be I
who have changed

it is an idea
that shapes everything
every-when

does time change

when
and how
is that achieved

or is it me
that alters to accommodate
a different
now

I read somewhere
somebody
some person of wisdom has decreed
one second

the year just past
had to be made more
by just one second

is that
can that be real

surely someone’s playing at god
or timelord

how will I be changed
if they cannot
surely they cannot
be sure
what they are doing

and
what right do they have
to tamper

I always thought
that time was self-aware
enough
to do without
second thinking
