Alarm Clock.


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!

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
