The Clock


Infant, toddler, squanderer
Child, adolescent, present
Tick-tock goes the clock.

Teen, green, to the extreme
Date, mate, everything's great
Tick-tock, tick-tock goes the clock.

Parent, career, looking to the rear
Grandparent, retiree, excitement recedes
Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock goes the clock.

Old, no longer bold, regret an ever-present threat
Alone, lonely, time won't last talking about the past
Tick. stops the clock.
