Check out more of Kellie’s amazing work and look for the pending release of another of her books, Jagged Little Pieces:
As I once again struggle to rise
I can’t help wanting to emphasis
The feeling that it’s a crime
Dealing with Daylight Savings Time.
It is almost a feeling of hate
Against those that perpetuate
This spinning of an extra hour
Leaving me now to feel so sour.
Of course it is nice to Fall Back
Get that extra hour in the sack
But when it comes to Spring Ahead
All week I have woken to this dread.
Why can’t we be like those who stopped
And this changing of hours they dropped
Leave my clock to run its assigned course
And stop making my feelings get worse.
To those nameless faces that control
Find a more worthy cause to extol
Fight abuse, disease or maybe crime
Approve a bill to stop changing my time.
