The Ticking Clock

there hanging a clock
with its pendulum swinging
it says ' tick tock tick tock
time is running'

it moves clockwise
without a doubt it goes,
not counter-clockwise
everyone knows

pointers go around a dial
each second counts
it is only mechanical
yet it haunts

midday to midnight
like the sun from east to west
morning till night
make no way for a jest

'tick tock tick tock
time is running'
says the clock
but later will stop ticking...
