The wall was adorned with an ornamental clock

She noticed it more often these days, tick tock

Was it speeding up, slowing down, mocking her

She hated to pry but she had finally had enough

The wall was concealed in a dingy felt covering

It was green wallpaper with a swirly foil coloring

It was older than ancient, yellowed by memories

She steeled her nerves for the final reveal


The wall was thin as evidenced by his voice

Colorful demands in a variety of his choice

His menacing complaints verging on rage

She shouldn’t dare but her heart said care


The wall came down with one small knock

Her determination was solid, hard as a rock

The monster that lived beyond that wall

Never had expected HER to cause his fall
