Paladin of the Lost Daylight Savings Hour

Acknowledgement to the works of Cordwainer Bird

WHO watches the watches? The clocks on the wall,
microwave, coffee maker, thermostat!
googly-eyed tail-wagging kitschy-ass cat!
alarm clock radio we got free at the mall!--

Each nonsatellited homebound ticking device
I must take time to make them time right
There goes another fine Saturday night. . .
Frankly not losing that hour'd be nice

This Puritan zeal we try to move toward
Early to rise and early to work--
Makes Jack a dull boy and his boss a real jerk
My internal diurnal cannot be sprung forward

With that lost hour oh what I would do!!
I'd write a novel! For sure, in quick time!
I'd write a poem, and then make it rhyme!
I'd go to Paris, Moscow, or the zoo!

But I guess what I'm saying is all really crap
If I got back that hour, I'd just take a nap
