Monday, March 13, 2023 – The Time Change or How Do I Love Thee
The Time Change
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee like a root canal with no anesthesia,
Or a flat tire on a Houston freeway during 5:00 PM rush hour, with no spare.
I love thee like a week-long blizzard in Texas in February with a failing energy grid,
Or a 24 hour stomach virus and running out of toilet paper.
I love thee to the depths and breaths of a Texas summer with no air conditioning.
I love thee like iambic pentameter and the onomatopoeia of screeching cats in heat next door.
Or miles and miles of road construction with stand still stops for no apparent reason.
How do I love the time change? Let me count more ways.
I love thee like a stopped up toilet on a Sunday morning of a holiday week end,
Or the morning sounds of waking up to gagging as my cat deposits a hairball in my bed near my head.
I love thee like a Category 5 Texas Gulf Coast hurricane,
Or unexpected hail storm in May when your car is in the parking lot,
I love thee like this is not only the last line of the sonnet, but the last time we change the time.
PS – I know it is Sunday. Just spring forward like we did yesterday.
Tell us how you really feel.
