Author's Chapter Notes:
For the March topic of Clocks. This wasn't going to be semi poetry, I'm not quite sure what it counts as really. I have no idea with line length, syllables etc, was just looking for a different way to tell the story, so hope it vaguely works !

It was the men who played Clock Golf.

Start at 1 O'clock, get it in, note the puts, then on to 2 position.

They needed something to do, after all, while the girls enjoyed the sale.


Note the score carefully there, it's a contest after all.

Move on round the clock, see what your total is for the round.

No noises while you wait your turn, lads, it must be fair for all.


Wouldn't want distraction, not sporting to cough or splutter.

I'm sorry sir, can't redo, no one else heard a whistle blow.

Wouldn't want distraction, not sporting to cough or splutter.


Starts a small and quiet group, unattached men only.


As crowd gets bigger, jeering banter. Though none of course while putting.

Husbands, Fathers do their duty, then released to join.

As crowd gets bigger, jeering banter. Though none of course while putting.


Careless slip, few extra puts, a wasted round I fear.


Click, roll, slow, stop.

Tension, will it go futher?

Click, roll, slow stop.


No! Not past, oh b...other.


Groan, shift, tap, in it goes, note it on the scorepad.

Move back, 2 o'clock now, try to ignore the others.

Groan, shift, tap, in it goes, note it on the scorepad.


So close ! Better luck next time, man. My turn next I think.


A drink perhaps gentlemen? Lemonade or water?

A drink sounds good, how much my dear... 5 franks?! That's...of course, of course, that's fair.

A drink perhaps gentlemen ? Lemonade or Water?


Oh look my dear, I believe they want you over there. Maynard, where's the spirits?


Grand game this, grand grand game.

Pass the flask boys, that's the way.

Grand game this, grand grand game


What's the tally lads, who is winning? He is ? Can't have that.


Another go, please, can't have him beat my score.

Steady, steady, here we go. Tap, roll, hold breath...drop !

Another go, please, can't have him beat my score.


Tea is served? Sounds like a plan, off we go then, be back soon.


Girls of all nations, shown in dance ...well... Yes dear, on my way.

Wonder if they'll stop the game, those single lads are getting ahead.

Girls of all nations, shown in dance...well...Yes dear, on my way.


Yes dear, I'll be fine, why don't you go ahead,


Shouldn't let this bother me, it's a charity do after all.

Who is winning then? Right can't have that, step aside.

Shouldn't let this bother me, it's a charity do after all.


Still, where's the change, another go I think, it is a very good cause ...


Click, roll, roll, drop! Aha ! Look at that - A hole in one.

Next position, fingers crossed, this could be the round

Click, roll, roll, drop ! Aha ! Look at that - A hole in one.


Ha! Beat that, you youngsters, barely lost a shot!


Yes dear, coming dear, oh yes, they've grown so much.

So you've made these all yourselves my dears, well done, they are...unique.

Yes dear, coming dear, oh yes, they've grown so much.


Glancing over, looks ok, don't think that crowd can beat me.


Mmmmm, they have done well, I do agree, you must be very proud.

Except...oh No! Surely they won't let Wilson play?

Mmmmm, they have done well, I do agree, you must be very proud.


Rumour running round - they did! And I would bet she's top.


Nearly end of the day, oh no! There's not much time to play more.

Excuses made, hurry back, check the scoreboard...dammit

Nearly end of the day, oh no! There's not much time to play more.


Click, roll, click roll, click and rollll, click and roll and ...yes!


Now a scramble, must beat her score, we can't have that you know.

Ha ! He's done it, good man there ... Oh no she's coming back...

Now a scramble, must beat her score, we can't have that you know.


A smile, quick check of the takings, and she's backed off thank God.


A winner, not me, ah well done lad, at least tis one of us!

Prize giving soon, a round of applause, and then all round good byes.

A winner, not me, ah well done lad, at least tis one of us!
