clocks watches time

Observe this watch,
Its rhythmic dance…
You are getting sleepy.
I will guide you
Into a trance;
Hypnosis is just
A little creepy.
You won’t remember
Or regret
The things you do
Under my command,
So relax and let
Your mind dive deeply
Down this nowhere trip
You never planned.
I flip the lights
To stroboscopic,
My movements quick,
A sleight of hand.
Entrainment happens,
Wavelengths in sync,
My thoughts are slip—
Oh no! I think
The watch has taken
Control of me!
