Daylight Savings Time, 2020
Kevin Arnold


Itís one of those many things
Iíd chosen to never worry about

But now my son Scotty has his
First home he wants that precious

Hour after work to overlook the
Hudson Valley from what was

Previously a summer cabin and
Which heís now sharing with

Either a squirrel or a racoon
Who manages to steal the food

Scotty puts out in a safe trap
So now Iím a fan of this national

Habit that was put in place to
Save energy or our glorious country

From something awful
I forget just what
