Waking Up Late

November 26, 2007
By Dominic Lombardo, Auburn, WA

waking up late, almost tme for school.
Swimming through my room like a messy swimming pool.
Pulling over clothes, I have to skip the shower.
Looking for my backpack, its been a half and hour,
since ive woken up. I am almost late,
i think im gonna make it if im moving at this rate.
I run down the hill to find no one at the bus.
I must have just missed it, i cant help but cuss.
I can still make it on time, but, this will not be fun.
For the next 7 miles, im gonna have to run.
I tie my shoes and sprint, try to keep my pace steady,
i arrived on time, but, im worn out and sweaty.
The doors are all locked i dont know what to say.
I check my wrist clock.. o yea!.. we dont have school today.
