A Delaying Dream

I look at the clock

With little time to spare,

I'm in such a shock

Will I ever get there?

A bright yellow bus

Drives fast away,

I start to fuss

"Oh, no – Oh, no!" I say.

And just as I run

To get to the school,

I wake up with a ton

Of relief – I'm a fool!

I look at the clock

To check my fate,

And I'm as dumb as a block

I did sleep in late!
