not the SOUP

    ~hanging on~

I wake, bright and early like the sun
I fall asleep a few seconds before dawn.

With a few hours of sleep
I found myself counting sheep.

Drinking  coffee before I leave
Found myself in a zone not even I believe

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

Turn my radio on real loud
Enjoying music loud and proud

I never late
I'm responsible in this job I hate

The owner taps the door and found me asleep
Up in my face like a creep.

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

I bet he wishes he could fire me
I will not 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 :)

With a goodnight kiss, he asked, 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 the same situation
Yells at me, he grabs my laptop and then he........

                     S.K.A.T. POETRY

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!
