Tick tock goes the clock
Ever so faintly on the desk top
My flaming lamp softly glows
As I watch tonight’s shadowy show
Those menacing characters on my wall
Dancing with rhythm like witches on lawn
Frantically moving to the beat of night sounds
Relentlessly all night – no end to be found
Whether I gaze here or there
No matter where my eyes stare
There is always movement to glare
In my room that I now share
The mind knows there are no blanks
Entertainment is free no need for thanks
For those who cannot find peace
In the joys of unconscious sleep
Company is found among the shadowy dancers
Who themselves never sleep
In the lonely hours of Zombie nights
Where thoughts and troubles and worries are deep.
