Tick Tock


TICK TOCK

TICK TOCK

The clock groans

I’m thinking

I’m thinking

I whisper through an exaggerated sigh

Five minutes

Ten minutes

One hour

 

TICK TOCK

TICK TOCK

The clock moans

I’m writing

I’m writing

I retort through gritted teeth

Two hours

Three

Four

 

DING DONG

DING DONG

The clock berates me

I yawn I stretch

I walk over to old grandfather

and give him a hug

All done

 

I swear I saw him smile at me
