Monster Clock

ImageOur time is so far from what we need
Wisdom is something we should give heed
To give our priorities a special time and dance
So we will know how to spend our time in advance
Life is unpredictable in it’s own batty way
Me, I never know till my minutes tick-tick astray
My clock is always chasing me down and telling what to do
So many times my clock will ruin things for me
and they fall through
Many times I dream that my alarm has fangs and Jagged claws
It’s chasing me down the street and I can hear the crowds applause
Just once I’d like to stop this frantic time chase
Be the chaser and have the claws in this race
