Time Will Tell

It is of functional design
Stainless steel and wood
It keeps good time
Though it was once dropped
Knocked the second hand right off
It does not seem to mind
Knows it can rely on me
To set it every night
Waking to it's morning chime
It just keeps pecking along
To the tick tock like that game show
"Beat the Clock"
Or the back beat of a country western song
Guaranteed to make you sigh
Just another soap opera
With a different battle cry
Tick tick tick.......Time
