The ticks, the tocks, the keys, the locks, that will,
In time, the clock, unwind and safe unlock,
To take the stock that age will rot and ruin.
For all will fall when time is tall and age,
Consumes the might of youth. The small, now tall,
Will take the clock upon the safe that holds,
The stock, held strong by locks, unlocked by keys,
Now hid in trees that age will rot and time,
Will ruin, through hand of man will take the toll,
Of world, now old, that ticks and tocks from clock,
Upon that safe unlocked did tell us now,
That fate is sealed and time is gone and we,
As man, have rot our end our time is dead.
