'Twas the night before CrossFit and dark in the house,
But what was that sound, it squeaked like a mouse.
The alarm was set for the crack of dawn with care,
Class starts at 5am, and I have to be there.
So I was nestled all snug in my bed,
When the fire alarm battery alerted "I'm dead."
I tried to ignore it and continue my nap,
But that damn chirping sound just wouldn't stop.
Out of bed, I reluctantly clatter,
And head to the garage, I now need the ladder.
Back to the bedroom I return with a crash,
To change the battery in this piece of trash.
Task complete, it's back to bed I go,
But sleep would elude me, wouldn't you know.
All of the sudden my answer appeared,
I need a battery that lasts for ten years.
