Ticking Clock

The loud ticking clock

on the wall,

deadlines to be met

by us all.

Never mind if you have

somewhere to go,

it’s your own fault

for working slow.

What thanks you get

once the job is done

will not be worth

missing your children. 

they have grown up

without a father

all in the name

of the mighty dollar.
