This pocket watch is named Nick-o-Time.
On the quarter hour his face winks and chimes.
Nick is tightly wound and ever punctual,
with hand movements that are perpetual.
Like his grandfather, Santa keeps Nick’s key,
a fact he proudly shares with glee.
He is always in Santa’s pocket or nearby,
keeping Claus and the team on time and spry,
whether on land or in the sky.
At night as everyone drifts off to sleep,
a watchful eye for all he keeps,
tic-tocking in the company of the mice and sheep,
until it is time for his first morning bleep.
