Tick Tock

By Yanna


Does night follow day or day follow night?
Rights can be wrongs when it’s wrong to be right
Does the car transport us or do we drive?
Time travels yet we strive to be on time
We take gems from the Earth and call them “mine”
We see lands and claim we discovered them
When cloth is too long we give it a hem
Buy someone using gold from where they’re from
Swim in the ocean and cry when you drown
Jump from a plane: Trust the chute down to ground
Play with your life: gamble. Who wins will win
Our beautiful world: the sin tin within
Live til you die or die after you’ve lived
Tick tock tick tock. It’s time… the clock has knocked
Goodbye sly fox. You’re deleted: not blocked.
