Humans Lose Sleep, Animals Win

The changing of times
has fooled no one

the sun still shines
whenever it wants

and the moon keeps on
prancing along

while the uncivilized beasts
slept an extra hour today

all the fools woke up
one hour early

to push some cells
around a spreadsheet

to show that sales
will expectations meet

the only ones fooled
are the ones that are fooling

one wonders
which species is dumb

and which of them
are the bright ones

when one grasps time
but still cannot

travel along
its singular line

so it plays stupid tricks
to make it think

that it matters
on temporal matters

Doctor Chuckles is a contemporary Fred Rogers.  Shunned by the children's book publishing industry, Doctor Chuckles turned to us.  He mostly writes for the Children's Literature and Word of the Day series.  Although you are likely to find him dabbling in other series every so often.

Gloomy, but I’m so sleepy.

One good thing about time change: end of workday is one hour sooner!
