The Oven Clock Says 4:44

quick listen to the tick of it
tonight not quite
tomorrow yet my friend
the time will come
when end is ended
the light on the black
and white linoleum
no longer shines
when I am died
and done will finally
rhyme with gone
right now resign to fight
     or not
with all your might
the silent tock
