(That old my birth certs is expired / Glasgow)

Alarm Call


Alarm bell rings in my ears
It don’t seem long since I climbed in here
All tucked up cozy beneath the sheets
Arm reached our to silence the beast

Just five more minutes I hear me say
As I slumber back to sleep this day
Repeat alarm ringing in my head
Saying just gets your self out of bed

Alarm of and one foot out
Just what the hell is this all about?
Groggy eyed and feeling cold
That shower tap I do hold

As the water blasts me boiling hot
I turn around and it burns my bott
Dancing prancing turning round
Eventually the temperatures down

Quick shower and down the stairs I go
Turning on the radio
The DJ’s happy not like me he has probably been up since three
Then the words I hear him say

Good morning all on this cold winters day
I bet you’re all glad it’s Saturday

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
