Our Grandfather's Clock was too tall for the shelf,
So it stood ninety years on the floor.
It was taller by half than the Old Man himself,
Though it weighed not a pennyweight more.
It was bought on the morn of the day that he was born,
It was always his treasure and pride,
But it stopped.........short.........never to run again,
When the Old Man died.
Ernest Jennings Ford. Mister "16 Tons" himself, although it was a cover of Merle Travis' song.
Your post made me look him up on Wiki, and I saw that he died in Reston, VA, just up the road from where I used to live. I don't recall him living in DC suburbia. Turns out he had just left a state dinner at the White House (hosted by Bush the Elder on 9/28/91), arrived at Dulles International Airport, and suffered liver failure. His clock stopped a few weeks later at Reston Hospital (right up the road from the airport.)
Har Har Har!
