Tick tock, tick tock sounding the wall-bound clock’s a ‘rounding reminding me of time’s old pedigree of ancient dead kings’ and queens’ crowning. Many a ruler yet none a master, the youth they’ll cry, “We want it all faster” The old they lament for all of time were spent for a wasted visage, the proud detriment. For the leafy green rising up in spring borrowed time afforded to their zing at the end of the day is taken away sequestrated for a debt, forced to pay. Time for all of Earth’s creatures to which they owe their features the gift of life once done they must acquiesce for the return to dust.
