Daylight Saving, Daylight Wasting

Poems to Scare the Daylight
Out of You
and then
Into You Again

I. Spring

There is not a finer thing
Than to travel in the Spring.
As you tote your luggage doorward,
SET YOUR CLOCK AN HOUR FORWARD!

II. Fall

Post this notice in your hall:
It is really, truly Fall;
You’ll receive a nasty shock
If you don’t SET BACK YOUR CLOCK!

– The Yellow Doggerelist

(Fall 1998)
