Morning Warning (A Poem for Day Eleven of PAD)

For today’s prompt (day eleven), write a warning poem. Warnings can be found everywhere: on the labels of medicine, in the speeches of leaders, and in the advice of parents. Even stories and poems have been known to harbor warnings.

Morning Warning

Alarm clock
attempts to prevent
missed buses,
tardy slips, dream
rickety reality.

Alarm clock
reminds me
of another
blank page,
of falling behind
on poem-a-day.
