2013 April PAD Challenge: Day 29

For today’s prompt, take a line from one of your poems (preferably one of your April poems), make it the title of your poem today, and then, write the poem.

“hitting SNOOZE” (from Day 23)



  No! I need more sleep,

    So, I’ll just hit SNOOZE.


It’s quite okay,

  Because today,

    I have some time to lose.


Nine minutes pass,

  The alarm sound blasts,

    Once again I refuse.


This cycle repeats:

  SNOOZE-sleep, SNOOZE-sleep…

    The hour hand moves.


Now it’s thirty past eight,

  Oh no! I’m gonna be late!

    What did I do?


The alarm had stopped

  Because I hit OFF

    Instead of hitting SNOOZE!
