A clock is like the Bubonic Plague, or Black Death, because both of them depend on time. A clock tells us the time, gives
time, and will always run with time as time moves on. The Bubonic Plague, although painful, was a quick death. The plague
would attack and all you would have to do is wait for the time of pain and suffering that the plague caused to end. A clock
and the bubonic plague both count down your time, and like the plague, with every minute that the clock counts you are that
much closer to death.
