Are you familiar with the 'Nana Nap'? Poem by Dan Reynolds


Are you familiar with, the Nana Nap?
Have you yourself fell victim to its pull?
The head bobs down, tho' not quite to your lap
as conversation changes to your drool.

These senior moments when the lights go out
and dentures dangle from the pink abyss.
The REMs confirm, there is no doubt
and from the nether regions, there's a hiss.

And all this happens unexpectedly
when you pretend to listen with intent.
As consciousness returns, it's plain to see
you're thinking 'Shit! I wonder what they meant! ! '

With confidence you combat the surprise...
'Och no dear, I was just resting my eyes'.

    Sitting on the couch, watching the tube, my wife took a nana nap on my lap, and awoke with a jerk. -c (Report) Reply
