Clock

The clock is a strange individual
with a round face
but no eyes or nose
and no body,
but has two hands.

The hands are not attatched
to arms or even shoulders,
but are stuck to the face
with no eyes or nose
and no body.

Minute hand is larger
than Hour hand,
and neither have fingers,
but somehow still point
to the numbers that
go around endlessly.

The fingerless hands that
confuse kindergarteners
with half-pasts, quarter-pasts,
and quarter-tills.
And tell them when it is lunch.
