Everyone is so busy and stressed these days,
One hour is a highly prized commodity.
Already feeling a dollar short and a day late,
We’re now another hour behind our deadlines.
Are we really saving daylight with this?
Will our energy use be slightly reduced?
Do people exercise more with daylight savings?
Shall we enjoy more sunsets this way?
Or will the cons outweigh the pros:
Do we get more stressed, anxious, frustrated, and depressed?
Will increased stress lead to more health problems?
Would keeping our hour leave us happier?
Time seems greener on the other side:
Arizona and Hawaii, oh how I envy you,
Rebeling against the pains of daylight savings.
Enjoy your extra sixty minutes today.
They tax us when we make our money.
They tax us when we spend our money.
They even tax our time by stealing our hours.
Why not just take the whole day away?
