Tick, Tock

This day will be
yesterday some hours
Another day will be added
with past.
My father, grandfather,
their friends and kins,
neighbors talked too much
beguiling their time
in duty, fun and frolic,
as they were the kings,
even time can't touch
them, no old age, no disease....
But, time chuckled,
as it is now smiling at
our foolishness......
Time is added to time,
no past, no present
or future....
Time strides,
and we brag,
though we listen every sec
the ticks of time...
Tick, tock, tick, tock,
