My alarm clock broke this morning
And hence I overslept
I used to have a spare one,
Which now I wish I had kept,
Instead though I thought I'd fix this one
It shouldn't be that complicated? !
But it proved to be more difficult,
Than I had first anticipated,
You should have seen the mess I made
And the trouble that it created,
I almost landed up throwing it
And got overly frustrated!
There were screws and wires everywhere,
And circuit boards and diodes,
I thought I'd better leave this alone before my head explodes!
I managed to put it back together,
But now it doesn't work so well,
I should have stuck to my old clock,
The wind up one with the bell,
Instead I've bought a new one,
That shows the time and date,
But this one's stuck on tokyo time,
So now I'm always bloody late!
