Cricket Conversations

Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
These crickets drive me crazy.
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
They keep me up all night.
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
My neighbor says they're peepers*
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
But I don't think he's right.

Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
I'm tossing and I'm turning.
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
I haven't slept a wink.
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
Invading all my brain cells,
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
They will not let me think.

Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
It's peaceful in the country
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
If crickets don't converse.
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
The city has its sirens
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
But cricket chirps are worse.

Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
I'm waiting for the winter.
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
And man, the time does creep!
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
When crickets take vacation,
Ch-ch. Ch-ch.
So I can get some sleep!

    I hear crickets where I live too but more eery are the coyotes who scream in the distance. Nicely written.Lee
