This Morning
Author: Ben Laney


I woke up
this mornin'
with my
elbows in my ears
Yes, I woke up
this mornin'
with my
elbows in my ears
My feet
were in my mouth
I could
not walk,
I could
not talk,
and I could not hear!

------- Author's Notes -------

Hey, maybe it was those Long Island teas I drank at the nightclub last night. Whoah boy! Those things will get your horses running all over the place! Now please excuse me kids, I gotta roll back over to the bed .
Big buckets of butterflies, Ben

Terrie*, only someone who has been through it too could understand this one. Oh, moderation is a very good thing, my poetic friend! And, yes, it's always funny when it's someone else it's happened too, huuuuuuh? Thank you very much for your kind comment, I am really happy to know it made you laugh.
