A Clock Without A "C"

by Barry Louis Polisar

A clock without a "c" becomes a lock,
And a shock without an "h" is just a sock,
And like a dog without a tail
Or a ship without a sail,
Without you I'm a sheep without a flock.

A stand without a "t" is just some sand,
And a plan without an "l" is just a pan.
Sometimes you gotta rearrange
And make a little change
To see things in a way you'll understand.

A flight without an "l" becomes a fight,
But a slight without an "s" becomes a light,
And like a seed that has to grow
Sometimes we're all a little slow
To turn a little wrong into a right.
