I was trying to sleep when this came to me. It makes absolutely no sense.

i

Look upon

The old

And glorious

Grandfather clock

ii

Ticking and more

Casting time ashore

Faithfuly never giving

Life a moments rest

iii

Here comes

The animal

Bound to

The Grandfather's laws

Feet and life

Marching to his tune

iv

The line between

Freedom and Not

Blurred beyond repair

vi

Way long ago

The throne

Belonged to limbo

With no time in place

vii

Time

Now ascended

As heir

To the throne

viii

Alas..

Time was

Still bound

To the cold

and brown

Grandfather

ix

Together man and time

March on for future's sake

Never faltering

Only to keep up

To the tune

Of the Grandfather Clock

x

Then man

Tripped

In his march

and heard

A broke tune

xi

Man turned to fix

Old grandafather's

Broken tune

xii

Grandfather follows

The tune

Set by humans

While humans

Follow the tune

Set by time

xiii

Listening now

The tune of life

Never stopping

For all life marches to it's tune
