Slice of Life 2019: Day 10
Twice yearly you are still remembered.
Yet, Ben Franklin invented you back in 1784.
He said your shift helped to conserve energy and kept the cows asleep,
but I’m a skeptic.
The day after you arrive my circadian rhythm is off,
my body meter thinks its ten when its eleven,
and I’m running late for church.
Somewhere around 2 am you stole
an hour of precious slumber
and the confusion has me spinning.
A report says I’m 25% more likely to have a heart attack tomorrow
and that I’ll likely by cyber-loafing due to sleep deprivation.
So, at this hour, which happens to be 9:20, or 8:20 if you are in Arizona, it feels like 7:20 post meridian.
Why don’t you just come back in the middle of the day while I’m in traffic!
