Cuddled in comfort, I yawn so wide,
that a dentist with his tools will merry inside.
Unwilling to part, my eyelids hold tight,
I promise them a reunion as soon as its night.
I reach for him to slit his throat,
still, he manages to snooze with his funny nose.
I wiggle in bed to stand my sleep in good stead,
soon after the tussle, the bed seems to have borne a night of romance instead.
O ‘ its morning, shrieks my skin,
with complaints aloud and curses unheard,
I walk it to the shower without its asking.
Knob turns left for hot and right for cold,
hold it to the center to stay dry a little longer.
The inevitable happens as the water pours,
and I begin to sing my reserved morning scores.
After the battle I step aside, to wipe those drops that prick alike.
I wonder, if tomorrow god was to be kind and dearer,
Let me remain clean and fresh to escape this morning terror, ‘shower’.
