The 'Poem A Day' Project-Day 45 - Poem by Flying Lemming

My alarm clock this morning woke me up late
Which meant that my day didn’t start great
The toaster, joining in the attack
Made all of my toast come out black

The kettle just seemed to do what it felt
The iron made my work shirt melt
The house alarm wouldn’t set today
The garage door wouldn’t move out the way

The car stereo wouldn’t play my CD’s
The traffics lights changed just as they pleased
The security keypad lock at work
Ignored my code number and just went berserk

When I got home the TV popped with a spark
And the lights all fused so I’m now in the dark
Everything electric has broken tonight
I’m surprised the computer is working alrig…

    Crawled out of bed because I 'forgot to read the word of the day'.. mine was somewhat crap.. but it was worth the 10 steps it took to get to the screen, bed beckons again, perhaps I can now conjure a dream somewhat sweet, pleased and teased... (Report)Reply
