Tickity ted

Tick ,tick ,tick
The number of the beast?
No, it's the sound of an ending passage
Perhaps part of a story
But the linear ways of time mean that’s 3 ticks
We wont get back

Wasting of ticks
Is a silly thing to do
And it’s the ticks who will have on you
The last laugh
As the ticks will be forever
But your ticks will end a collection
Of unwise choices

We desperately try to extend our ticks
As if we can continually do it
But the extension is a longer path to the same place,
The ticks continue their loop
But the place is as far as we go
