Chronocide

Standard

Chronocide, the act of killing time,
an abhorrent, self-destructive crime,
the murder of minutes, the slaughter of seconds,
is a particular hobby of mine.

Clocks talk themselves in circles,
The world turns
and time marches on
The world turns,
and clocks talk themselves in circles.

It troubles me, this hobby of mine,
the murder of minutes, the slaughter of seconds,
but then I have committed greater crimes,
than chronocide, the act of killing time.
