fff55: Time zones

Where does it go
That  hour that we lose each spring?
Just as we return to rising after dawn
We are plunged back to morning darkness.
The evenings become longer.
But those hours are lost in
All those after-work chores:
Commuting, cooking, cleaning,
Eating, sleeping, living life.
Where does it go?
Where does time go?

The clocks go forward this weekend  in the UK....... snore!

FFF55 is a weekly challenge to write something in exactly 55 words. 
It's hosted over at the G-Man's blog.

What worries me more than that is that the recent earthquake has lengthened the day by almost two microseconds. This mean for an average working week, you are putting in an extra 150 microseconds each year. Which means that if someone earns 20k pa, they should be receiving an extra 30p pa. So put in for a rise, otherwise the employer is getting 150 microseconds of your time for nothing!
