The Clock

Time canít be bought.

You get just one shot.

That donít seem like a lot,

And itís not.


The clock ticks time away

Hour to hour, day to day.

No words you can say

Will make it stay.


It reads the time true

With no regard for you.


Try to understand

That old second hand

Donít give a damn

What you had planned.


So donít gaze at the clock

And watch that pendulum rock.


It does no good to stare.

So live like you donít care,

Like you just arenít aware

That clock is there.
