The Bellman

Tick. Tick. Tick. Tick.
The clock strikes four.
Ding, Dong. Ding, Dong.
What makes the bells ring so?
Perhaps a little man lives between the cogs and wheels.
His name, unknown.
His purpose, very apparent.
Maybe he watches the hands of the clock all day.
The seconds tick by slowly.
Then, when it's almost five,
He'd get excited.
When the minute hand finally makes its way to the twelve,
I smile would pass over his lips.
The bell rings again.
Ding, Dong. Ding, Dong. Ding,
Then he'd sit down and await the next hour.
