Tick tock

Tick tock
Tick tock
The rhythm of life
Tick tock

Keep steady
Ever ready
Don't let it stop
Tick tock

Wind up
Keep on
Can't miss a beat
Tick tock

Watch close
Follow now
Don't fall out of step
Tick tock

Wait!
What?
You've jumped off?
Now what?

Tick tock
Tick tock
Keeps on going
Tick tock

Don't need to stay
We're free to run away
Hear it fade away
Bye bye

Tick tock
                tick tock
                               tick tock
                                               tick tock

This poem was written for the photo prompt provided for Mag 146.
