Bill Sargeant /time after time/

time after time

the clock-face confounds me
time after time and time again
it grins as it grinds down the years

tick- a life, tock

astounds me with its understanding
screams: time is immortal
only man has to die

tick- a life, tock

and time after time and time again
it reaches out with indefatigable hands
and strangles me

tick- a life, tock

 


My name is Bill Sargeant. I am a 56 year old Londoner now living in North Wales. I was a regular contributor of poems, philosophical essays and short stories, to The Eloquent Atheistbefore its closure. In addition to poetry, I am currently working on a collection of short stories and a second novel.
