Clocks Don’t Tick


When I was young,
And the world quiet,
I listened to the tick, tock of our clock.

Now I’m older,
And the world loud,
I listen for the tick, tock,
But clocks don’t tick.

The clocks have been changed,
And rearranged.

They tell me it’s new and improved.
Then why do I yearn for the old tick, tock of our clock?
