Tick-Tock
by C. S. Raine (2014)

When the world crashes down,

What will become of us?

When the walls cave in,

Where are we to hide?

The clock keeps ticking –

(tick-tock—tick-tock—)

And when it stops,

How will we survive?

When the bell rings –

(ding—ding—ding—)

Who do we become?

And when the knell tolls –

(dong—dong—dong—)

Where do we go?

(ding-dong—ding-dong—)

Will the chimes jingle?

(cling—cling—cling—)

Will the bars clash?

(clang—clang—clang—)

The doors close?

(BANG—)

Why do we have to go?

(ding-dong—ding-dong—)

Is it time to go?

(DING-DONG—)

It's time to go.

(DONG! )
