By David Allen

Tic tock, tic tock
People live by the clock
There’s a time for this
And a time for that
A time to cry
A time to laugh
Appointments to make
Deadlines to beat
Errands to run
People to meet
24/7 and 365
A time to be born
And a time to die
Crawling hands
On grandfather clocks
Mark the minutes
Taking stock
But we only remember
Moments in time
Days feeling helpless
Moments sublime
For every season
The old song goes
There is a reason
But for what, I don’t know
There are too many choices
And too little time
Should I switch to prose
Or stick with rhyme?
The truth about time
Is we’d better not wait
To get down to living
On too late a date
Tic tock, tick tock
Tic tock
