Definition of Clock

  CLOCK   noun
A machine of great moral value to man, allaying his concern for the future by reminding him what a lot of time remains to him.
  A busy man complained one day:
  'I get no time!'  'What's that you say?'
  Cried out his friend, a lazy quiz;
  'You have, sir, all the time there is.
  There's plenty, too, and don't you doubt it --
  We're never for an hour without it.'

Purzil Crofe
