CLOCKED

Am I the only one watching the clock,
Watching it go around,
Around,
A second at a time?
Why is no one else watching the clock?
Don’t they know we can not stay so long here?
That we must leave, must go, go go, that we are out of time?
Time.
Time.
Tick.
Tock.
Tick.
Tock.
Watch the clock.
Watch the clock.
Right to left.
Around.
Clockwise.
Never counterclockwise.
One.
Two.
Three.
Four.
Five.
Six.
Seven.
Eight.
Nine.
Ten.
Eleven.
Twelve.
Then back again.
Unless unless
It’s
Thirteen
Fourteen
Twenty four still.
Stop this madness!
But can’t you
Can’t you hear it?
Going off in your mind?
Tick.
Tock.
Tick.
Tock.
Watch the clock.
Watch the clock.
Time is running out.
The hourglass has spilled.
No one is watching the clock.
Everyone is gone,
Gone.
Only I can watch the clock.
Get out, get out
Let me watch,
Left to right.
Left to right.
Right to left.
Right to left.
Can’t you just tell me,
Where’s the clock?
WHERE’S THE CLOCK?
Tick.
Tock.
Tick.
Tock.
Watch the clock.
Watch the clock.
