My hubby just fell out of bed He banged his elbow and his head Now I can hear groaning Expletives and moaning I’m certain that he isn’t dead! Only the first line is true – last night we watched a programme on how easily people lie but on this occasion I would call this poetic licence 10/10/18

G'day Jan … perhaps hubby should take a Viagra before going to bed. That should stop him falling out - Lindsay

Funny Jan, maybe you can call it a historically based poem (based on historical events but not necessarily true).

My twin insisted on having the top bunk bed when we were about 6 or 7. She fell out of bed in her sleep and the next night, I had my top bunk! Cool poem Jan. : )

My hubby whines if he has a scrape or the sniffles, but last year when I fell and twisted my knee he didn't give too much sympathy (whoops, didn't mean to rhyme, but you know how they jump in!)
