The Ticking Man

A solemn man walks to a beat That rhythm never changes Walk up to a safety net Tick tock Tick tock boom Fuse grows dead but keeps on burning Showing no sign of stop The man, he walks up to his house Tick tock Tick tock boom Shattered mind, loss of breath Revealing the truth Recognized, sunken eyes A bunny crawls to his feet Losing breath, pitter patter With the truth and mind Bunny gone, at least she’s safe Tick tock Tick tock boom.
