WHAT OCCURS WHEN THE ALARM CLOCK FAILS:
I set my alarm clock Saturday night,
As yesterday had a busy day.
Well the alarm clock failed to awaken me.
And the price I am going to pay.
You see I was travelling to Spain
To dogsit for my son.
I was really looking forward to it.
Thinking of all the fun.
When I did awaken yesterday,
It was way past take off time.
I immediately sent a text message to my son.
........Well lets say things are not at all fine.
He has blocked me
From getting through on the phone.
No more HE dosen't want me.
Now I'm totally alone.
He is off to Mexico tomorrow.
Perhaps he'll have a change of heart.
But I very much doubt it.
On my own will have to make a fresh start.
I don't really blame him,
After all is done and said.
I should have ensured the alarm clock .
Was set properly before retiring to bed.
Tearfully I unpacked my suitcase,
To the depths of despair I have gone.
I have only myself to blame
Why I have lost my son John.
