Time

First drawing of the year, for this week's Illustration Friday's theme of 'time'. We used to sing this when we were skipping at school, and in big trouble if overheard using the word 'knickers,' which was considered very rude. We were told to use 'britches' instead, for goodness sake. 

There are a few different versions of the rest of the song, but this one's my favourite:

What's the time
Half past nine
Hang your knickers on the line
When they're dry, take them in
Eat a biscuit, eat a cake
Eat your knickers by mistake 

(ps: dear readers not from British-influenced countries - knickers are undies)

Hi, Carla. Very good start! Really!
And good question!
I think we are balancing on a rope between two times, the past and the future, we should not give too much importance to either. because if we are distracted, we run the risk of falling.
a kiss!

This is too cute, and suits the song perfectly! Have never heard it before, but then, I'm in the U.S. :)
