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

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! !

(2005)

    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.
