It is earlier in Central Time,
But Eastern folks don't seem to mind
Staying up an hour later than
Their Central Time Zone-dwelling friends.
Don't they realize what they're losing
Giving up an hour of snoozing?
Count: Twenty-nine thousand, two-hundred
Sleepless hours they could have slumbered.
(That's in a life that's lived to four-score,
Though some of us might croak before.)
I'm going to miss you, extra sleep,
When grad school hours I have to keep!
Could we nudge this state a little West
So I can get some extra rest?
