Tick Tock

Tick Tock

A Poem by Shwetz

Tick tock
The clock says
I ask what?
It says Go
I ask Go where
It says Go
To where I ask
It says Tick Tock
I say enough
Let me rest
It says tock tock
I say Shut up
It says tick tick
I say what is it
It says Go
Go to where
Let me rest
It says tick tick
I say please shut up
It says Up and Go
I say let me rest
It says tock tick
I say now what
It says go go
I sigh
And Up and took a step
The place burst to flames
And down in grey wax
Shocked I looked on
The place wax and butter
With no one hither thither
I patted my pants
And heard tick tock
I checked at the clock
It wasn't there
I checked again
It came from my body
I checked again
It was near the heart
I hugged myself
Thanking tick tock
And the pulse beat
Up I looked grateful
And I went

Very thoughtful. Sometimes I feel like I am wasting my life when I could do better things.
