School Semester Rollercoaster
Alarm Clock Dance
Beep beep, infernal alarm clock,
I slam the snooze button,
Over and over
Sun peaks through the window,
Says, Wake up silly goose,
You have to wake up, you have a
Shower to take, Food to eat,
Car to drive, Errands to run,
School papers to write ;
Remembering the papers,
I roll over and ignore
The sun and all my responsibilities.
I can no longer ignore the sun
It's too bright and shines through my
Translucent lids and thick curtains.
I get up, take a shower and eat.
I drive my car and do my errands.
Eventually, I sit at my desk:
Staring at the computer
I try to write my paper.
Words don't come, phrases don't
It feels like I'm trying to lay an egg,
It just feels unnatural.
It's unnaturally forced,
It's a black on white catastrophe.
My teacher will weep,
When reading my paper.
This is a crime against English grammar!
What has the world come too?
