A chiming clock is not what you need
though a time check every quarter of an hour is guaranteed
Yes every fifteen minutes it will chime
and the bloody thing isn't even mine
I don't mind a reminder on the hour
then I don't have to use my alarm to remind me to shower
It is loud though late at night
at midnight I look forward to twelve chimes, oh what a delight
If it gets on my nerves, isn't it getting on their's?
They have gone on holiday so from their point of view who cares?
It is probably a new precious gift
and when they hear it it probably gives them a lift
It may be an heirloom or worth some doe
I may suggest we take it to the Antiques Roadshow
Well then it can be gone forever
peace restored, that's so blooming clever
Thank you for reading today
join me again tomorrow
Free From Friday
