Ticking Away

Life is a clock quickly ticking away
Every second you lose is time lost in dismay
Jupiter's omnipotent hand shall light the way
Let Athena grant lasting lucidity's sway

Minuscule moments let your life drain today
Mars' violent stand will provoke more delay
Don't lay waiting for Apollo's next ray
Flee from Death's darkness down Hades' way.
