THIS SUCKS

That’s as good an excuse as any I’ve heard.

Unfortunately, it’s not true.

Here’s what’s true:

Once upon a midnight, clearly,

head upon my pillow weary,

after sleep (an hour, soundly)

woke up with a startle.

.

A cat of twenty pounds was jumping

on my chest (my heart was thumping)

manic paws were kneading round

the hills upon my torso.

.

Stretched out flat, he started purring,

while his needle claws were stirring,

till I fled the grinding torture,

running to the bathroom

.

After cleaning bloodied tissue,

still I had a pressing issue,

Waiting for me on the bed,

he curled his fur beside me.

.

His head now covering my pillow

flying fur began to billow

into tender nostrils as I

writhed upon the blanket.ย 

.

Fat White Dog’s tremendous sneezing,

while my tender skin was freezing,

rendered frantic needles tearing

as I’m loudly screaming.

.

Cat’s offended, dog is growling

at the human loudly howling,

ย three o’clock is barely here?

I cannot help but wonder.

.

Will I ever know how pleasing,

(or is it celestial teasing),

to consider sleeping longer

than three hundred minutes?
