A short poem on a daily affliction.  By Eric Ackerson


When first chirp is heard from the bedside device

Intent on discouraging further solitude

My first thought is rrrrrgh this is not very nice

One clear motivation on which to brood

My sentiments turn to the rumble and hiss

Of myhungrytum that is needing some food…
