Running Late

 – Ken Nesbitt

I overslept. I’m running late.

My mom is making such a fuss.

If I so much as hesitate

I probably will miss the bus.

I grab my socks and pant

and quickly pull on all my clothes.

I haven’t time to comb my hair

or brush my teeth or blow my nose.

I wolf my breakfast, kiss my mom,

and barrel madly out the door.

I’m feeling anything but calm.

I’ve never been this late before.

I run like crazy down the street.

I check my watch. It’s almost eight.

I wish I’d had some more to eat,

but, man, I simply can’t be late.

I barely make it there in time.

To miss the bus would not be cool.

I wouldn’t mind except that I’m

the guy who drives the kids to school.
