A Traders Poem - Nom De Plume Part 3

As you know, it's 'Nom De Plume' Month here at Real Life Trading. The challenge was, to write something new. And that's exactly what another Real Life Trader did. THANK YOU Mark!

                                     Tick Tock

A poem by Mark McCauley


Tick tock, tick tock

that's the sound of the stalwart clock

Tick tock, tick tock

plays in the background while trading stock

Tick tock, tick tock

it's a sound many people ignore

Tick tock, tick tock

it's a sound other traders does bore

Tick tock, tick tock

is a sound so ripe, full of glee

Tick tock, tick tock

speaks of future earnings to me

Tick tock, tick tock

is the sound dividing the day

Tick tock, tick tock

it's the song of theta decay.


Inspired by a Slack post from Fred Atwater on 11/20/17:

“Zzzz... just let your thetas tick away”
