The alarm went off early this morning
In the form of a wet nose
Poking me right in the middle of my face.
The offending snout was insistent,
Wanting to wake up and walk,
But, come on, it was still dark outside.
Besides, the birds were still sleeping
So I rolled over,
A tactic that had worked on my kids in the past.
No luck, nature was calling
And my man needed to get out,
Even if it was really early.
