The Whispering Clock

Title: Clock’s Whisper

Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock,

The sound spreads from the clock. Does it say something,

Or has it told you already,

Did you hear it hiss in the ear;

am sure it doesn’t address me dear.

O how foggy it is today!

Or the clouds have flown down.

I remove my glasses & wipe them clean,

Ah! What a view I beamed.

No it hasn’t cleared much,

I take them off again.

I rub my eyes and pull my ears

Who’s there? I roar in fear,

Hearing that sound again!

I inch back away and near.

Tick-tock, tick-tock,

A sound that grows in me;

Who is it? Reveal yourself!

At once or I push you in hell!

Tick-tock , Tick-tock.

Thump, thump, thump,

I am here; It’s me, Do you see? Thump, thump, glug.

It’s me, tis me, why don’t you see?

I am your friend O thee!

You! O you! you’re my enemy!

No! O no! Please! stop cursing me.

I am a friend & will always be.

But I can’t stop ticking you see!

Is that why you fear me?

Yes! Yes! you said it yourself!

For the way we hate you much!

O! should I stop, ticking that tock?,

Whispered the clock to me!
