Future Running Counterclockwise

An Acrostanka...or Tankrostic! 

                                        Each tick of the clock
                                        Accelerates neglection
                                        Reducing the time
                                        The future would last few hours:
                                        Human's punctuality

    nice combo of forms - have you seen the movie "in time" w/justin timberlake? this reminds me of that, even though you're referring to the earth's time running out and not people's. i like the clock image :)

    You are always an orginal!! Love the simplicity of this....not to mention the two-fold form. Nikko will too! And by the way, what a great friend you are to show up and check out so many of my poems....I spent the evening smiling! Thank you, are awesome and kind!

    Good idea..I stay at home more now at least until the last two weeks because gas is so high that I can't afford to go..Last two weeks have had to go to chiropractor for treatment to try to get easy...Thanks for stopping by..Your presence at my work was uplifting..Sara
