Around the clock face. Here we go.
Where we stop, We do not know.
From twelve o’clock, The whole world knows
Every hour, “Tick, Tock” it goes.
1,2,3,4,5 and 6 – Half the clock face hours tick .
7,8,9, 10,11 and 12 – Throughout the day the world revolves.
But that’s not all, for when it’s done,
Twelve more hours makes a day’s run!
We rise in the morning, and play through the day.
But twenty four hours is it I say! – CH.
And in the technological age,
Clock faces have undergone change.
Digital and electronic,
Has quietly replaced the tock and tick! – CH.
