One heartbeat

(the beating sound of grandfather/longcase/tallcase clocks)

Computer or video, what is taking over?
The escalator’s moving down,
there they all go, can’t afford to be slow.

The writing is on the wall, telling me what I must do.
Teacher, please may I leave this Earth?
May I ring the bell? May I have the key?

This is no place for children, but what do I care?
The terminus is reached, this is my chance,
my dreams are all complete

The Policeman smiles and beckons me to move on
The Policeman smiles and beckons me to move on!!
JUMP! YOU FOOL, JUMP!
JUMP! YOU FOOL, JUMP!

One Heartbeat, Government Issue, for the use of,
Now gone.
