Twenty-three hours, fifty-six
Minutes, four seconds.
The remaining three minutes,

Fifty-six seconds
Are just a rounding error,
Although a resounding one.

Our days are slowing
Although too slowly for us.
By the time the rotation
Fits twenty-four cesium

Hours exactly, there likely
Won't be any humans left
To note the moment.
Something will still watch the stars.
