Tick Tock

by Jem Croucher


Sat quiet in a still, small hour
“Tick tock” the silence said
My pen it scribbled frantically
My words to sentence led

No slow of time or guilt lay there
No mischievous intent
A meeting mind instead laid bare
To freedom it was lent

“Tick tock” the silence said once more
Glanced up, I saw the clock
Thought ‘must be rushing off quite soon’
(It came as quite a shock)

The time from dawn to day had sped
In the blinking of an eye
But lost to whimsy, scribbling still
It had gone swiftly by

“Tick tock” the silence shouted now
I grabbed my bag and went
Complete with new creation here
Productive, that time spent
