Daylight Saving Time isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
It’s time to set the clocks ahead
and lose an hour’s sleeping.
We think our brains can be misled
through solar-based housekeeping.
It’s darker in the morning,
but the sun will stay up longer.
And yet, here’s a word of warning:
risk of sunburn gets much stronger.
This concept really is a dodge
I find unjustifiable.
A self-deluding trompe l’horloge;
some subterfuge heliacal.
Adding daylight’s misbegotten;
I prefer the dark before dawn –
all because I’m really not in
any rush to put my shorts on.
