Remember the old days when using a bell
Was the only way for someone to tell
When it was time to come in for supper
Or fall out of bed if you’re in the upper …(sorry…but it rhymes…)
Bunk and needed to get up quick
Cause the alarm on the clock decided to stick?
Those were the days when you woke up cranky
From an old bell so clunky and clanky.
The blasted thing never stopped, if it worked
So you were tempted to give it a jerk
Off the shelf and across the room
Hoping to quiet the impending doom
Of rising again to face the fray
Getting up and out, and start your day.
(Lucky for you, the ten minutes is up!)
