Saturday Special - Daylight Saving Time Quatern

Love Sleep, Hate the Leap!
by Rachel Hoyt

I hate losing an hour of sleep.
It makes me behave like a creep -
Snapping my tongue 'bout everything,
Louder than a punk star can sing.

I try not to say a peep, but
I hate losing an hour of sleep.
I grew up in Arizona -
We keep time the way we wanna.

I love Cali, 'cept the time change.
The practice, to me, feels quite strange.
I hate losing an hour of sleep.
It makes me want to eat and weep.

It turns Sunday lazy into
Nothing day feeling tough to do.
Get ready!  It's time for the leap.
(I hate losing an hour of sleep.)

    I wish they'd take this leap and shove it up their gazoo

  3. I hate, hate, hate Daylight Savings Time. It's so pointless.

    (Of course, I wouldn't be doing my blogging duty if I didn't mention my own post that I wrote a long while back about Daylight Savings :D

  4. I'm right there with you! I absolutely dread tomorrow morning when we have to be at church, ready to sing, an hour early . . .
    Cute poem, though!

    Stopping by from your blogoversary post.
    I hear you! I have a sleep disorder, so every little bit of sleep I can get is precious.
    Thanks for sharing.
