The Time I Like Best

Poem by Roger McGough

The time I like best is 6am
when the snow is 6 inches deep
which I'm yet to discover
'cause I'm under the covers
fast, fast asleep.

    I like that time for the same reasons. It's cold outside but I'm sleeping in a warm bed.
    What an effortless pleasure that is.(Report)Reply

    Excellent! So much said in so few words! Who doesn't like being under the covers at 6 am when it's snowing outside? !(Report)Reply

    The key word here is to discover. But to discover what? That the snow is 6 inches deep? This he knows already. Unless he is talking after the facts. Then, the poem makes sense and we know what he means poetically and logically.(Report)Reply

    Once again the white right winger using the term political correctness to push his racism when afterall he determined that Nike and Kaepernick are the ones being politically incorrect so he protests. What’s really going on is he doesn’t like being reminded that racism exists and that there are symbols of racism. http: //www.4cashpath.com/(Report)Reply
