Tick Tock

(Get money and you can buy anything)


Sat at the table
tie around his neck
vaper in hand…
He looked at the clock…


Tick
tock
tick
tock

Time still for a quick thought…
Must avoid rush hour on my way to work…

He looked up and said to himself…
Can you buy that sky?

Can you buy the moon at night?
Keep the summer wind by your side?
Or eternal peace of mind?

Can you really?


Could I get my youth back?
Hold a single wave in my hand?
An artist talent and make it mine?


Tick
tock
tick
tock
tick
tock
