BROKEN TICKER

I do not want it back
This broken heart of mine
It’s been broken now
For the longest time

Tried to fix it
But it has a tick
Under me where it dwells

The tick so loud
Sometimes I want
To kick it straight to hell

Even froze the thing-
Can’t feel anything
But it knows my address well

It’s a subtle ding
Yet I hear it ping
And it makes me want to yell

Tried to send it home
Won’t leave me alone
As far as I can tell

Put a sign outside
With the words FREELOVE wide
Not one fell for the sale!

Watched everyone walk by
Not a tear in their eye
But they all wish me well

Why won’t this heart leave me alone?
