THE STEEPLE CLOCK
Sitting in the sun in garden fairTower clock just struck the hourIs that 25 o’clock againOr is it half past fower?
It was installed during VR’s reignIt’s been there quite some timeAnd wound by hand in those auld daysBy local cooncil, syne.
But now it’s lecky’ and no by handIt disnae work just richtYiv’ nae idea what time it isIs it day or is it nicht?
I dinnae care I hae’ a thingThat’s sat by me a whileAnd if I need tae ken the timeIt’s my trusty auld sundial.
