Ode to Daylight Savings 3

Ode to Daylight Savings 3



This is an ode to daylight savings!
With ads stalking me all day,
pouncing lions while i’m a slow something,
with fires burning up parks and down apartments,
with my waistline slowly expanding,
with another thing to buy,
another to do, and then another thing demanding,
with time spent at stoplights and
freeways and off ramps and highways
and toll plazas and tunnels,
with just trying to live and just getting around,
with madmen mad at the transit security administration
which didn’t exist until sept. 11, 2001,
with so many social media networks now and
now my friendsĀ not on any of one them,
all i needed was a single extra hour.
