Tick-tock goes the clockroach

Climbing on the wall

You’ll notice when it starts to scuttle

That time begins to crawl


The creepy-crawly timepiece

Once fell from a great height

And found that it could fall quite fast

But it could not achieve flight


Tick-tock goes the clockroach

Underneath the bed

Two antennas spinning round

In the middle of its head


Counting down the minutes

Until a fateful foot should fall

Stopping time in its tracks

Halfway down the hall.

Clockroach - A short funny poem about a timepiece with antennas.
