The Broken Clock

The Broken Clock

Dedicated to Ol' Man Time

Life is like a cuckoo clock--
Tick tock tick tock.
When you least expect it,
Time runs out on you!

From day one, when you land on Earth,
The ticking of time is all you're worth.
From the word "go,"
The scars of time will show!

Now you think you're in the driver's seat,
But friend, don't let time miss a beat.
You race through life
With all its time-related strife!

Appointments to keep,
Sometimes with only a little sleep.
Various places to go--
Sometimes fast and sometimes slow!

So take advantage and play it cool;
Don't end up being the only fool!
Someday soon, even at best,
The cuckoo, friend, will lose his nest!
