The party’s great, there’s fun for all,
You arrive as the beer is flowing.
Then someone turns the clocks ahead
“Oh, dear, I must be going.”

Dinner at eight, you arrive early
You gobble some bread, then go.
You can’t be considered rude, however,
It’s daylight savings, you know.

The sermon on Sunday meets an empty church.
(And the message today is really HOT.)
The dear old preacher turned all his clocks,
But his wayward flock forgot!

You go on and on about losing an hour
You whine and complain all day Sunday.
You thought you had reset all the clocks
But forgot the alarm, which wakes you on Monday.

… and you’re an hour EARLY for work. ICK!

I love 'changing the clock,' time - Rebecca diligently changed them - and I changed them back - really messed her up, too!!

yet just think of the extra daylight ... that should be enough to brighten anyone's day ;)

This is so funny. It takes a little time to get readjusted. I keep telling myself that it's really an hour later

If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done. As for synchronizing my many clocks--forget it! I just try to keep in mind which one is ahead and which is my behind.

Excellent... but I'm already counting the days, till I get my hour of sleep back...

This confused me. I thought the title was "Time piece" and the poem was about an aging sex partner.
Oh well, DST befuddles all of us.

Ypu tickle me to death, Katy. You are such a hoot. When am I going to be able to buy a copy of that book? Reading it will be like spending all night at the improve.

Yep, if you were near, you would hear me complaining about this "Spring Forward" for a week or so until I get used to it. I just wish we would decide which is best and just leave the clocks there all the time. Then there are the clocks...holy cow!! they are everywhere on the phone, on the answering machine, on the microwave, on the coffee pot, on the stove, on the TV, on the VCR, the alarm clocks, all my watches the one just for checking the time in the living room, the one on my calculator, the one above my desk that shows the time all over the world...whew!! I was exhausted after just doing the resets and tomorrow I will have to do all the clocks at work... Very cute poem, Katy. Don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke alarms!!
Take care,

Aw, Katy, you find humor in each and every situation in human existence. It has been said by wiser men than I that laughter is good for the soul. That being the case your soul is in top-notch shape.

Don't laugh, I did that one year not too long ago, even the computer kept changing to one hour ahead and I kept changing it back thinking it was haywire...then on Monday I am cruising to my first stop and wondering why the stop was closed when I got there...I ended up calling my office and they told me about the time change...what a dolt I can be sometimes, but not watching TV or listening to the radio can have this effect this time...guess I better change my clocks now, huh? LOL! ED (thanks for the heads up)

What a horrible thought but what a sparkling poem for spring ahead day. I won't be right until fall when I get that lost hour back.
