Your Weekly Politickle: HOUR APOLOGIES

Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:

HOUR APOLOGIES
It isn’t our fault this is late,
It goes out Monday mornings at eight,
We’ve not altered the time
That we send out our rhyme,
But the clock gets pushed back on this date.

From the archive

OUR CONFUSION
Will we ever develop the knack
Of remembering how to keep track,
Overcoming the “block”
Of resetting our clock:
To “fall forward” or, rather, “fall back”?
(2005)

ON THE BLINK
Saving daylight is wonderfully wise
And a cinch if a citizen tries.
It’s so simple to do,
I’ll explain it to you:
You save daylight by closing your eyes.
(2007)

FALL START
From the clock that I keep on the wall
I acquired one more hour last Fall,
But I never did use it
And will now likely lose it:
Tell me what was the point of it all?
(2017)

Last week’s limerick

MASKED FEELINGS
Halloween has become a big bore.
I don’t like it as much as before.
What’s the reason? you ask.
I’ve been wearing a mask
For so long it’s no fun anymore.
