"Life," said the girl,

"is *not* simple clockwork.

It's much more than gears,

time passing by,

and birdies saying "cuckoo"

when the hour strikes.

It's more than that,

more complex, more full

of thought, choice, and

things that are more fluid

that clockwork.

Why can't you see that?"

"I beg to differ, my friend,"

said the boy,

folding his arms,

and intelligently

straightening his

glasses.

"Do *you* not see

life's beautiful routine

that is like clockwork?

Things of basic importance

are the same, we:

awake,

eat,

drink

(whether it be water or not),

strive,

and return to our sleep,

only awaking again to repeat the same thing.

Ah, the beauty of those things,

intertwined carefully in

everyday life, and always

necessary,

no matter who,

what,

where,

when,

why, or

how

the situation is.

My friend, that looks

like a routine to me,

does it not?"
I was just relaxing when the word 'clockwork' randomly popped into my head, beginning this poem. I'm not sure what category this is, so I put it in General Poetry.
And I wanted to mix things up, so I put space between the lines. Yay.
This is the first of two or three parts, if not more than that. I hope you enjoy them.
