I'm Enjoying My New Work Hours While They Last

Before today, the sun rose after I
Had gotten up and dressed and off to work.
In winter, several hours would go by
Before it came up; now I've earned a perk.
My shift begins at nine like normal folks'.
Like normal folks, I go to bed at night.
Of course with this new shift there comes the jokes
About the lights and traffic I must fight
To get there in the fierce Cheyenne rush hour.
It's just for now, though, because I just might
Commute by bike before the year's first flower
Emerges from the frozen dirt in spring.
The greenway path is really just the thing!
