Poetry on the Odyssey: Time

I threw the alarm clock at the wall

Poetry on the Odyssey: Time
Kjartan Einarsson

Time


Tick Tock,

goes the hand,

of the clock I forgot to adjust,

because of Daylight Savings Time,


The alarm clock rings,

I don't move much but enough to

grab my alarm clock

and through it

at the wall.


Ahh yes.. much better

Rough Morning huh?


There are 24 hours in a day,

we are supposed to sleep 8 hours a day,

we all probably get less than that.

and sometimes we oversleep,


some of us work for 8 hours,

some of us work for more than that,

some of us go to school for 8 hours give or take,

don't forget about all the sports, and extracurriculars we take part in


Managing Time is like playing a game of chess,

you have to think several steps ahead,

you have to plan ahead,

Even though, sometimes your plans don't work out,

the pawn blocks you,

your friends cancel

the knight is several steps behind you,

you have a deadline you have to meet

and the queen blocks you into a corner,

something unexpected happens and blocks you in a corner

And you simply ran out of time
