Tick tock!

Tick tock! Tick tock!
It beats within.
Ring-ting! Ring-ting!
It sings within.

It serves the purpose,
of a pacemaker.
It makes me feel,
something’s live within.

A replacement.
A gadget.
Keeping me alive.
An offline widget.

I threw away that lump of meat.
Threw it away for Dogs to eat.
I found myself a clock, or something.
And placed it somewhere deep within.
