Oh, Funny Owl

Oh, funny night owl; I relate
to you. I also stay up late!
My eyes, like yours, are mellow green
and staring too, but at a screen.

I stare at E-mails and TV
until I know that finally
I must retire myself to bed
and rest my weary night owl head.

I feel so rotten when I wake
I have to do a double take.
I see the clock. It's eight a.m.
I sit up grumbling, "Damn, oh, Damn."

Then brimming with new morning cheer,
I drag myself before the mirror.
And what I see upon my face
are little lines I can't erase.

Oh, funny night owl. We're not wise
with circles underneath our eyes!
And now I get to look like hell
because I love the night so well.

    Be careful Andrea, you may wake up some morning with a field mouse on your pillow.

    I guess it is unwise for humans to become night owls, but, it is hard to stay away from that life!.... This poem was very humorous and it really made me smile! Nice work, Andrea! Congrats on your win!

    As a fellow night owl I like this. There's just WAY too many things I must check up on before I hit the hay (and even when I do hit it I still, now and then, check my phone). My friend at work works at a coffee shop as well... she gets up 5 in the morning and goes to bed at midnight... I'm guessing it's all the caffeine. Even as I type this message it's almost midnight for me... fun poem!

    We don't share the Night Owl personality..I am exhausted and ready for bed at dark..In the mornings, I can't sleep and have to get up be comforted though I look and feel the same way..Thanks for the encouraging reviews..Yes, I have written many Diminished Hexaverse. When I was trying to learn some new forms, I practiced on that one many times..Sara
