Notice who has no trouble sleeping...the weasel and the sheep

Wife’s ghostly moan in the midst of the night

As creatures scamper right across our bed

It’s just half past four and I’m now aware

That what’s happening is not in my head


The door is ajar as the wind rings the chimes

Outside our bedroom on the deck in the back

The footsteps are clear there’s somebody here

 I brace myself for the impending attack


The assault comes in waves as I try to be brave

I’m outnumbered and can’t see in the dark

I feel a knock on the head and a bounce on the bed

And hear the piercing high chirp of a bark


It’s all out war and they simply ignore

The fact that I’m trying to sleep

They jockey for pillows and roll on my face

The evil sisters the Weasel and Sheep


Housebroken dogs are simply a must

Though I’d prefer that they had better timing

For their wandering outside and returning to bed

So I can sleep till the alarm clock starts chiming

Yeah, but who gets up with the weasel? Good luck when I'm traveling. . . watch where you step, my man.

Luckily, my dog was more busy trying not to be disturbed by me than the other way around! (LOL)

Hahaha! Loved the humor and your dogs are gorgeuous! We have three cats and one's the cats who play in the middle of the night around here....

Ain't it fun! You should try five dogs, and bunches of cats, doing the very same thing!! I can't even remember the last time I was able to 'sleep till the alarm clock starts chiming.'

Well just look at them! And for good reason Midnight Mahem! This pair of canines look like a velvet patchwork quilt! Their markings say they are bedroom dogs...

I always let my doxies out right before bed to try and avoid this nightly scenario. Sometimes it works. Very funny poem. I totally relate man!!!
Reviewed by Mark Lichterman
Very appropriate with two well housebroken dogs. When I had three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, they would all sleep in the bed with me and they all snored... very loudly: Symphonic snoring. As always, Patrick, on the edge of hysterical writing.
Your friend, Mark
