This middle of the night shit has got to stop...


Awoke choking,

Wish it were from coking,

Alas though tis’ not,

Possibly my blankie was too hot…?


Post nasal drip,

The problem, no script,

Would it help to strip,

Or snort some spray,

Making it go away…


Have to of it write,

Even in the middle of the night,

Even Rufuz does sympathize,

Sneezing while daddy does cough,

My dog intelligent, he does empathize…

What's this? coughing, sneezing, wheezing, and writing??? What a combination.

Sigh... you went a little German on me in the title, eh? But, Eddie M, m'dear, with all the horrors of being you in the middle of the night, you still come forth with self-effacing, uniquely rhymed, "only you" poetry. Oh, how I've missed it. (smile) yes, it's me... katy xox.

Me too, Ed. I have been awake every night with the same problem. Here it is so dry that it just seems to make it worse. I have been keeping saline spray and water next to my bed to try to get a quick fix so I can get back to sleep. It is miserable to say the very least.
Take care,
