Dead Men Don't.... Poem by Linda Coker

Dead Men Don't....

Rating: 4.8

His face was still and lifeless
Like I've never seen it before
The form resembled my loved one indeed
But I really was quite unsure

The mouth had fallen open
The brow had lost its stress
Such peace surrounded this motionless man
At his horizontal rest

I leaned in for a better glimpse
Then came an alarming ROAR!
I knew right away that this stiff was mine
For dead men just don't snore! !

Amusing poem, Linda, with a clever element of surprise :) Cuts both ways though, my ex used to snore soooooo loudly, seperate rooms were soon on the menu... Best wishes. jack :)
