Ticking Clock

The clock stopped, 
As the earth rocked, 
Ancient Teutonic plates, 
Move, shift and reshape, 
Life of man and scene, 
Buildings crumbled to smithereens. 

The clock crumbled, 
As the earth rumbled ,
People scared, unprepared,
As the earth moved, 
Settling into a new groove. 

The clock's smashed, 
Nature's thrashed,
Feelings frayed ! 
People feel betrayed, 
By a higher being, 
Controlling yet unseeing. 

The clock will tick, 
Towers rebuilt brick by brick,
Faith will once more be restored, 
The controlling force once more adored, 
Human's strength, will overcome the woes, 
Trees and plants and lives will regrow, 
Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock 
Life continues it will not
