The Mag had the above illustration (image by crilleb50) as a prompt.
It reminded me of Segal’s law:
"A man with a watch knows what time it is.
A man with two watches is never sure."
Which then morphed into a limerick:
The dreadful tyranny of clocks
Is worst when they travel in flocks;
With one you’re aware
Of the time it declares
But more are sure to flummox.
