>Five More Minutes

>I gained an hour this weekend
              Yet all I want is five more mintutes
                               Not to stay up
                                            But to stay just outside of life
                                                                To write a bit or two
                                                                                   Of what I have seen and felt
                                                                                                     But stubble needs harvesting
                                                                                   And teeth need attention
                                                                 My boss wants me to show up
                                             Show up browned down
                                 And ergonomically toned and turned
                So a shower and a shake
And a kiss laid on lips I will miss

Til after sunset and a step outside life will draw me to her once again
