Desk Clock

Tick, tock, tick, tock
Chatter the teeth of the big yellow clock,

Tick, tock, tick, tock
Or the spines of a porcupine knitting a sock,

Tick, tock, tick, tock
Or the nails of a grizzly bear picking a lock,

Tick, tock, tick, tock
Or the claws of a lobster repairing the dock,

Tick, tock, tick, tock
Or the feet of an ant highway transporting stock.

Tick, tock, tick, tock
My new teacher gave me this big yellow clock,

Tick, tock, tick, tock
To help me work faster, but I think it might not.

 

Maybe this works for some kids, but it didn’t help mine.
