Alarm Clock

In which SithJawa writes a sonnet about her alarm clock.

I must admit that I use the "snooze" function on my alarm clock evilly. First I push it when I wake up for the first time. I may or may not go through a few snooze cycles still getting sleep. Once I'm up, though, I use it to keep me going through my morning routine. I have a bad tendency to get stalled at points of my morning routine. I can spend a good twenty minutes brushing my hair and examining my face minutely for blemishes, even though I can't do horribly too much with them. The snooze keeps me on track.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
