Tickin’ On

(A response to the apathy of the general world populace to the struggles of developing and struggling nations – Crowwitch)

A bullet
Hits home
Not my friend
My life goes tick
Tick
Tickin on
My life goes tick
Tick
Tickin on

Is that rain
No, it’s bullets
Not my people
My life goes tick
Tick
Tickin on
My life goes tick
Tick
Tickin on

Grenade!
silence –
not my house
my life goes tick
tick
tickin on
my life goes tick
tick
tickin on

bomb
shhh hush baby
not my town
my life goes tick
tick
tickin on
my life goes tick
tick
tickin on

missile
don’t you cry
not my place
my life goes tick
tick
tickin on
my life goes tick
tick
tickin on

wait
not yet
my life goes tick
tick
tickin on
my life goes tick
tic
