Tick tock. Tick tock.
Goes the ticking of the clock.
I can't stand the sound at all
So I throw it at the wall.

Tick Tock. Tick Tock.
I still hear the stupid clock.
Now the sound is in my head.
When will this torment end?

Tick Tock. Tick Tock.
Sometimes I wish I was a rock.
I could lie down on the floor
And hear the sound no more.

End

Found this humorous and liked the wry tone. Felt a little off re the cadence, but that could be me (feeling off).

Ha! I'm sure everyone would love to be a rock when that darn alarm keeps going off! Great piece, Annette, now I'm going back to read the rest!

Ecxellent, Annette! There have been many times when I wanted to throw that clock at the wall and hear the sound no more - especially when I am sitting at my computer with that blank screen in front of me and have no words come to mind to fill it.
