There is a place not far to seek
where Friday’s the first day of the week
and the order of numbers is four before three
and eight before seven. How can that be?
Lunch follows dinner, May follows June,
and morning comes long after afternoon
in this place I know. You know it too,
but just in case you may need a clue:
one place where you may not think to look
is inside a special kind of book.
Answer: the dictionary
