It was a bright cold day in April,and
the clocks were striking thirteen,the strangest
sound in this brave new world,over our land.
Why was it happening? Everyone cried

An extra hour to fight wars or to die
An extra hour to shout loud or to cry
An extra hour to be hungry or cold
An extra hour to be lonely and old

An extra hour to stop the fighting now
An extra hour to calm the couples row
An extra hour to help the world in need
An extra hour to care would help indeed


So on a bright cold day in April chime
the thirteenth hour to give us all more time
