I remember setting my alarm

But I’ve been lying here for a while

And it still hasn’t gone off…

This is a most curious trial.

I think I set my alarm

But I’ve forgotten to before

And my roommate is already stirring…

Am I supposed to sleep any more?

I should have set my alarm

Just as I do every night

Perhaps I’ll check it on my phone…

The light is so bright!

I did indeed set my alarm

But I’m afraid my ability to sleep is long gone

So I suppose I shall arise…

Oh the stress I’ve undergone!
