“I can’t be late to school again!
They’ll mark me tardy in red pen
And who knows what will happen then?”,
Said Glen.

“We should throw away my bed
And get a catapult instead
To fire me out and overhead!”,
Glen said.

“And this alarm clock isn’t right
We should set up and ignite
A 40,000 watt spotlight!
All night!”

“Changing clothes is such a waste
Of time that’s better spent in haste.
I’ll have them permanently placed
With paste!”

“The flight of stairs just slows my stride.
We should switch it with a slide
For the quickest slickest ride
Inside.”

“And what about the family car?
It seems to be a bit subpar-
A rocket’s best from where we are
By far!”

And Glen had lots of good designs
From breakfast served on sharp inclines
To ways to cut the bathroom lines.
(Dig mines.)

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.
