The Tick That Ticks.


Tick tock. Tick Tock.

Motivation which comes and goes.

I sit and watch the clock,

As it ticks and tocks.


What does it mean to make someone tick?

Both positive and negative it can be.

Something that goes so quick,

As quick as a simple one two three.


Ignorance makes me tick.

The negativity that surrounds the flame.

A recurring click makes me tick.

As I sit playing the waiting game.


This tick might be that tick.

Or in other words,

A parasite arachnid.

Whether it's this tick or that tick,

My clock still ticks.


Tick tock. Tick Tock. Tick. Tick. Tick.
