Tick Tock!

Tick tock the clock is ticking
It's time to punch your brother
Tick tock the clock is ticking
Don't forget to eat your peas

Clock click the tick is clocking
Can I borrow that shovel please?
Clock click the tick is clocking
I can find underground water with two sticks

Once in a lifetime people die
Penguins have bad memories
I hope you're not allergic to cancer
Things are happier in the pantry

Tick tock the clock is ticking
All French people can see through walls
Tick tock the clock is ticking
Take off your shirt and order some sea monkeys

Clock click the tick is clocking
Your label maker just won't work
Clock click the tick is clocking
Dangerous sandwich fights all fires

Once in a lifetime people die
Hamster silverware laundry hat
The milk's gone bad because it hung out with the wrong crowd
That last line is non-conformist

Tick tock the clock is ticking
Lock the door to keep in the mice
Tick tock the clock is ticking
Hand grenade soup is our special today

Isn't this what Gene Wilder was singing during the boat tunnel ride in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?

What the hell, Kurt? Just what the hell.

That said, I can honestly say that's the best* poem I've read in a long time.
