Twenty-Five Seven: Another hour


Good news — another hour has just been added to every 24-hour day (don’t ask us how. We have powers). How do you use those extra sixty minutes?


The Daily Prompter

claims it’s good news

that the day’s been expanded

by another hour.

The man lies.

“Work expands to fill the time.”

It’s another sixty minutes a waste.

—Linus Fernandes.
