Emily Dickinson - 'Twas later when the summer went

'Twas later when the summer went
Than when the Cricket came --
And yet we knew that gentle Clock
Meant nought but Going Home --
'Twas sooner when the Cricket went
Than when the Winter came
Yet that pathetic Pendulum
Keeps esoteric Time.

Comment 1 of 1, added on April 15th, 2013 at 1:33 PM.

This poem is about the future, and how the author, Mickey Mau5, believes that the earth wil switch its magnetic poles. One the poles have been switched, all of the evil from imagination land will be unleashed on earth. Priests will recite the necronomicon. Horses will walk backwards. Pencils will have no erasers. It will be mass chaos.
