Morning Pantoum

By
Beep! Beep! Time to get up.
Why can’t the alarm just shut off.
As it taunts me relentlessly.
I try to shut the wretched thing off.

Why can’t the alarm just shut off.
I just want to sleep.
I try to shut the wretched thing off.
6:49 is the horrible time I must wake up.

I just want to sleep.
I roll off my bed. Thud.
6:49 is the horrible time I must wake up.
I crawl back in bed, giving up.

I roll off my bed. Thud.
Whatever it takes to get up.
I crawl back in bed, giving up.
Glance at the clock, realize I must rush.

Whatever it takes to get up.
I meander through my dark room.
Glance at the clock, realize I must rush.
Before I know it, I’m back on the Bus.
