A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

Pocket Watch

I've been inside a thousand pockets

Passed from Princes to Kings

And I've seen all their little trinkets

Interesting junk, and they think it's

Worth keeping all these random things


Old receipts and last week's train tickets

Pocket lint and sweets gone sticky

A thing that was found upon the floor

But what it was they weren't sure


And you wonder how I see and feel,

These things you may not understand

But I have a face to look with

And to feel a pair of hands

And with them I feel

A thousand days of fluff,

Half a chocolate bar that's saved

Because the owner had enough,

Something quite gross,

Best left unguessed,

Something hard and something rough


So give a thought for pocket watches

When you're staring at your wrist

Because somewhere deep inside a dirty jacket

A pocket watch exists
