We were late home from Dunedin last night and to add insult to injury we lost an hour of much needed sleep when the clocks went forward.
Once more I’ve got the:
Daylight Savings Blues
Spring is here the grass has grown
It’s time to have my annual moan.
Why do the clocks move on so soon
And force us to rise by light of moon?
Spring equinox gives 12 hours of light
So we have to rise while it’s still night.
And what use is the extra evening sun
If it’s not there once dinner’s done?
The clocks moved on an hour last night
But the weather forecast’s not looking bright.
They say we’ll get rain, hail, sleet and snow
Blue sky and sun alas won’t show.
What’s the point of clocks gone for’ard
When every day the weather’s horrid?
Couldn’t they wait til winter’s past
And we no longer face its icy blast?
In summer’s heat I agree it’s fine
To change the clocks and gain play time.
But early spring’s still cold and dark
For those at work before the lark.
Delay the change by three weeks or four
Til there’s 14 daylight hours or more.
We could then rise after the sun
And have more light for night time fun.
Take heed of all the morning workers
And not those lazy evening shirkers.
Daylight saving makes sense in summer
But in spring it just makes us glummer.
