Originally from Switzerland
There came a German
revered as the finest
No, make that
The Greatest Clock Maker
The likes of which
our worlds ever seen

Now he
was wound up tight
he was precise
Knew every time zone
like the back of his hand
But he never had any time
Spent his life around it
Sadly it ran out on him

Remember
The Great Clock Maker
Revere
His delicate fingers
Which would make no more hands
Woe is the unsung hero
No time for a woman
Spent his life around it
Sadly it ran out on him

You could weep,
or take pleasure
in his handiwork
All around us
His life ambition
The Great Clock Maker
He knew the right gears
To get a pendulum to swing
When it came to time keeping
There was nothing
he didn't know
Oh oh oh oh
The Great Clock Maker

The Great Clock Maker

Now he
was wound up tight
he was precise
Knew every time zone
like the back of his hand
But he never had any time
Spent his life around it
Sadly it ran out on him

enjoyable
This is clearly lyrics rather than poetry. I haven't quite worked out what style of music it should be though.
There's definitely something about this piece that holds my attention; it's got a persistent pace to it that keeps me going till I get to the end.
Very enjoyable.
