I set my alarm at 9 o’clock.
Being very tired, I slept like a rock.
After some hours of dreamland ventures.
I woke to its sound of grinding dentures.
Slammed it off but it kept on crying,
In my brain my nerves kept frying.
“7:09 Am. What in the world?
Explain yourself or you’ll be hurled!”
It stopped its screech and gave me a look,
E-nunciated with a breath it took:
“I was parched so I woke you up,
You lazy bum can get me a cup!
Water or milk or juice sounds good,
Just bring me the usual like you should.”
I fetched it a cup of the best from my tap,
Fresh spring water that it could lap.
Draining the cup, the clock said “Ta!
That did the trick, you’re a good bar.
Now go to sleep, you have some time,
I’ll sing you a song, a soothing chime.”
I went to bed while fearing the worst,
I felt a bit like I was cursed.
Then I heard its song of sleep,
Never knew beeps could send me so deep.
