Call it a Day (Poem-A-Day 30!)

Alarm ClockFor today’s prompt, write a “calling it a day” poem. Some people might call this “Miller time,” others may refer to it as “closing time.” Just remember: Don’t call it a day until you put it in a poem.

Call it a Day

Jerked awake at 8am sharp
Like falling off a tree
Some part of my body
Knew I was late

After a night
Laying sleepless
Lights out
Indigestion burning
Mind spinning
Plans regrets fears
Until my phone
Warned of a tornado
Deflecting east
At 5am

When sleep descended
This foggy morn
I don’t know
But with work emails
Piling into my smartphone
At 8:03am
I decide
To call it day
