not the SOUP!!

    Its not the  SOUP,

I wake up bright and early like the sun
Sleeping real late at night before the a.m. dawn.

With a few hours of sleep
I still find my self counting sheep.

Drink my coffee before I leave
Find my self in a zone not even I believe.

I kick the neighbors  dog real far
Tired of him barking at me before I get into my car.

Turning my radio on real loud.
Only when I hear a song that will makes me proud.

I never arrive at work real late.
I have to be responsible in the job I hate

The owner opens the door and finds me asleep.
I tell him get out of my face you stupid creep.

He tells me I am lucky he can not work alone.
Why do I insist of not waking him before I leave our home.

He also said he wishes he could fire me.
Instead to leave the soup at night I have to agree.

As soon as I log out of the Poetry Soup I tell him when I'm done . 
When he goes to bed I still find myself roaming the Internet for fun :)

Kissing me goodnight, he ask me if I could give him some.
I say just one more comment hun,  I'm  almost done.

By 4:00 am I am still on the Soup.
He wakes up to a no surprise
Yelling at me he grabs my laptop and than he........

--for GARETH JAMES contest--leave me hanging--

    Irma This is a cute and creative write. You pulled the reader in right till the end with humor and fun. The soup is addictive and any poet on here can relate to this. Hugs

    hey, wasn't this a poem for a contest that never was judged? I still remember because it was called "Leave me haning" and that is exactly what the guy did to us with his contest!! (thanks for my win, Skat)

    Cool I like the kicking the nieghbor's dog. I write all my poems in the early hours of the morning and sleep by day. Naughty but that's work that dictates me hours

    Irma, do you remember THIS contest. Gosh, I was dying to know how everyone ended their story poems and GArth has VANISHED from the site!! thanks for your comment. I always feel guilty when I talk to you since I didn't enter your contest. I just can't think what i would say for it. But I want it to be successful for you and I have not even come across any of the entries for it yet. You are such a sweetheart. Luv, Andrea ps did you see Linda's latest contest. It;s one you could really do well in!
