A Taunting Tanka

"Tick tock" the clock mocks,
"another day you've wasted!
Face my displeasure."
And it whirls its hands faster.
"I will show you who's master!"


Tess and her Mag 189 called forth this flight of fancy, with an image by crilleb50 which I adapted to suit a nightmare scenario. :)

  6. I don't consider any day wasted. I used to, and I railed against circumstance, but a day spent resting, then accomplishing something, is a good thing.
    Time does fly, though, doesn't it, Jinksy?

  11. My thoughts exactly, and my poem bears a similar message...but (I fear) with considerably less vitality.
