Choices, Choices

Tick. tick. tick.
On one hand, there's a choice,
On the opposite, another.
Tick. tick. tick.

Quick, make your choice,
Time's running thin.
If you choose one, you can't go back.
Tick, tick. tick.

Do you choose this way,
Or do you choose the other?
Hurry, hurry, time’s running out.
Tick. tick. tick.

If you don't make your choice now,
You'll be stuck in the middle,
From now until the end of time.
Bong. Bong. Bong.

Still choosing?
Too bad.

Time's Up.
It's over.

This poem came to be in the form of a thought that wouldn't go away until I wrote it down.

Some truths best left unspoken.

I know what it means to have someone comment. So... I thought I would. But I don't really know what to say. Except I like it. And I'm sorry because that is a very tipical brainless thing to say.
