Hello everyone! This week's article will be one that people from my college should understand. Especially if they live in the same hall as I do. During the first full week of school, my hall's fire alarm went off three times, and I was present for all three of them. (And it was not me who caused it any of the times.) Now we have just finished week four of school, and this past Monday, the fire alarms have yet again been my alarm for the morning, quite literally. I was especially annoyed and so I wrote an ode that I hope you guys will enjoy, maybe even get a few laughs. So now I present to you, An Ode to the Fire Alarms.
An early morning it was
And the students were still a-dosing
Monday it was
Not a sound had begun
Yet the day was still young.
Two till seven
And the alarm went a shrieking
Students went to runnin
RA's went to searching.
Cold and sleepy,
Students grumbled while in pj's
But the alarm kept a yellin
It was sure a case of the Mondays.
Oh fire alarm, why must you be so sensitive?
We haven't done a thing to you!
Oh right, it was the hairspray or the shower
That caused you to scream at this hour.
The minutes came and went
And the RA's allowed us back in.
So as we return to our daily routine
We gladly say goodbye
And hope for there to never be a next time.
