A “LITTLE” ABSENT-MINDED?

A “LITTLE” ABSENT-MINDED???

 

What a weird sensation to feel,

Having more time than needed to deal…

An appointment at ten,

Got up way before then

And felt foolish by his own zeal.

Eight-thirty-thirteen was the day,

He thought eight-thirty okay…

As a time to be there

But was unaware

In bed two more hours he could stay.

The real time was after ten,

He mixed up the numbers and then…

Discovered his crime

At the earlier time,

Got an hour’s more sleep in the end.
