“I can’t be late to school again!
They’ll mark me tardy in red pen
And who knows what will happen then?”,
“We should throw away my bed
And get a catapult instead
To fire me out and overhead!”,
“And this alarm clock isn’t right
We should set up and ignite
A 40,000 watt spotlight!
“Changing clothes is such a waste
Of time that’s better spent in haste.
I’ll have them permanently placed
“The flight of stairs just slows my stride.
We should switch it with a slide
For the quickest slickest ride
“And what about the family car?
It seems to be a bit subpar-
A rocket’s best from where we are
And Glen had lots of good designs
From breakfast served on sharp inclines
To ways to cut the bathroom lines.
He shared another thought or ten
Then walked out proudly from the den
And looked up at the clock and then…
Saw that he was late again.
