Early Morning Snore - Poem by David Harris

It starts of just before four am
with a put, put, put of an old Volkswagen,
and then descended into
a motorcycle engine on idle
with a tick-a-tick-a-tick
before revving up a notch
into an motorcycles engines roar.
Hence, my other half was at it again
with her early morning snore.
Like everyone, she denies that she ever snores.
Each morning like a regular alarm clock,
she starts her snoring engine
and I quickly vacate the bed,
it is my only escape to peace,
away from a motorcycle engine
roaring inches from my head.
One day I got out my portable Dictaphone
and started recording her,
when I played it back
she said I had recorded out in the street somewhere.
Now I am an early riser,
and who wouldn’t be
with a motorcycle engine roaring
just inches away from your ear.

    Oh my, David; I could not stop laughing at this (though really it is not funny to the one who is kept from sleeping) but; does your wife know you have memorialized her forever for all of us in a poem about her snoring? Maybe there will be much more quiet in the dog house? haha..loved this. (Report) Reply
