Sleeping Late

I like to sleep late.
When I do, I feel great.
But Mom gets so mad -
Missing the bus is bad.

"5 more minutes, please?"
My plea does not appease.
Now Mom is fit to be tied.
"Timeliness is a matter of pride."

I promise to get up early tomorrow -
This seems to ease her sorrow.
Then I see the error of my way,
For tomorrow is Saturday!

Is there a moral here for you to take?
Don't make promises when you're not awake.
