Bad Timing

by James Morehead

"dam that alarm!"
as you slam your fist
on the blaring menace

crawl into your clothes
and put on your shoes
                                    before your pants


and finally open your eyes
                                          to stay awake
turn on the light

brush your hair and forget your teeth
put your books in a bag
but leave out that French
                                        that you didn't do
it's a good excuse


and find out
                    while you peer in the darkness
that it's only 5 A.M.
and your alarm clock has broken
