Tick Tock


Tick Tock

The pendulum stopped swinging

Several years ago.

But time kept on ticking

With every day that goes.

Though the regulator is not regular

Perhaps a dry cog or wheel…

Years keep moving on in circular

And adding to my bill.

When my ticket comes due

In a year or two…

It won’t matter if tick or tock.

My clock will stop ticking

Hands will stop moving

My face will stay fixed

And I will turn blue

Booo Hooo!!
