Weekend Plans

On Saturday, I told myself,
I’d have a little time.
I’d rid my house of clutter
and my bathroom sink of slime.
I’d make that run to Costco
for the Q-Tips I’ve been needing.
I’d write my magnum opus,
or at least I’d do some reading.
I’d return the books and videos
I borrowed back in June.
And it’s likely I’d have done it
if I hadn’t slept till noon.

    This Saturday’s a special one
    here in the USA.
    Our clocks must be turned back an hour
    much to my dismay.
    An extra hour sleeping
    all sounds well and good to me,
    but coming home from work each night
    it’s now too dark to see.

    Thanks for the extra rhyme, Evan! Yes, it feels like an hour of daylight has been stolen from the late afternoon. I’d forgotten about this myself, but some friends have reminded me that the time change is cruel and unusual punishment for those who have young kids!
