Humiliation All Around

The theory of engineers says, this year the clock will be
the symbol for all objects. The globe a scattered fountain,
twirling in a bowl of perfect brightness.

Now the fleas have become the rat.
French troops drag the Missouri river for a lost horse.
The garden of bitter syrup is looted to spare opium.

Which confluence of mellow predictions
would divert the apple from its spinning?
Demolition will keep the ox out, but does not stop the boar.
