Your vanquishing ticks

Of time

Have betrayed me with

Your surly


Have held me hopeful

Of some special


Your metronomic ticks

And tocks

Of lazy


Corrupt and beguile!

You spoil the


Fashioned by Love

And Romance,

Hold your

Meaningless Wake

When I can

No longer


Your merciless



You are!

And, Evil


When the final

Tock is


I shall be

The Victor
