detock the clock

knock it out
ticking away the seconds
tocking away the minutes
bonging away the hours

grandfather time bongs on the hour
his pendulum could swing for england
a paragon, a ticking time bomb
who everyone wants to explode

the myth of time
the mirth of always trying to rhyme
if i could time it to the nearest point
it’d be a hell of a time

its time to detock the clock
time to wind down and uncoil
you can get your cheque back as you leave
no rhyme or reason you should leave
