When the Clocks Strike
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009

 

When the clocks strike
A seventh time
When the clocks strike
Your life is mine

When the clock strikes
You reach the line
The point to which you
Will never return

When the clocks chime
A seventh note
When the priest proclaims
The lines of oath

When the clock strikes
You reach the line
Where there will be no
Turning back

When the clocks strike
A seventh time
When the clocks strike
Your life is mine
