Signature of Time

A sign of the times.
When the words just won't rhyme.
In a church bell's mysterious chime.
Disquieting, the posture of the mime.

As clowns run in and out of crowds
afloat on sidewalks light as clouds.
Roaming through the thunderous divide.
Avidly resisting the great tide.

Yet swept away within the waves.
Like panthers in the zoo, they crave
a freedom that they cannot find
within the safety of their times.

A sign. Symbolic mystery.
The unsolved puzzle's history.
It leads them in a circular design.
Miming the great signature of time...
