"The Time of the Clock"

Carr Lane Visual Performing Arts Middle School
City of St. Louis, MO

Tik-Tok, Tik-Tok!
This was the time of the clock!
The red stick is spinning and so far it’s winning,
The black is so slow! Where is it going?
The roundness is weird, why not a square?
It would be more interesting to stare!
It looks like a pizza that goes to school,
But with a square it could look so cool!
Tik-Tok, Tik-Tok!
That’s the time of the clock!
The numbers are weird, where’s 13?
The time of the clock is so boring!
How about more numbers for the time being?
Tik-Tok, Tik-Tok!
Here’s the time of the clock!
The bad thing is it never stops!
Tik-Tok, Tik-Tok, Tik-Tok, Tik-Tok!
The bell has rung—now let’s travel to another clock!
