The Pocket Watch

Tick tock, Tick tock
Shutup you damn clock
I know my time is slipping away

There is no need to remind me
Of the tasks lagging behind me
Of the work I put off from day-to-day

All those projects that need completing
Quick! Hurry! Summer is fleeting!
I try to keep my panic at bay

If you keep up your pestering
About the time I have been sequestering
I might just have to lock you away

Thank you, Shafali, for drawing the artistic prompt for your Creativity Carnival. I thoroughly enjoyed dipping my fingers into some poetry for this adventure and am looking forward to seeing where else your art will take me.

    1. Yes I imagine with whatever small amount of time you take off that half of yourself is all ready making new lesson plans? I am only assuming since you are so passionate about your work โ˜บ

  1. I love it! It’s got the depth (or would height be a better word?) of emotion – it makes you expect the watch to actually shut up and slink away! Awesome take on the prompt!

    1. Thank you Shafali! I must say I find writing prompts from pictures much more enticing than words. Thank you for drawing this and creating the carnival. I think I will like being part of the circus ๐Ÿ˜‰
