Telling Time

Do you have trouble telling time
I find it quite confusing,
here are just a few things
that I find quite amusing.

I bought a 24 hour clock
but found it had a flaw
I took it back and told them
it has no 24.

At home I have a normal clock
but I can't understand
why the third hand on it
is called the second hand.

I am told the military
tell time in differant ways
midnight,s 2400 hours
but that's a hundred days.

Whoever thought up this idea
his logic was reversed
for no-one in their right mind
would put the second first.
