ODE-ious Monday: Ode to my Alarm Clock

Yes, the odes have reared their ugly heads again. And since I have to get up so stinking early tomorrow morning (um, THIS morning), I figured my alarm clock was an apt subject.

Enjoy the silliness of it, and hope everyone has an awesome start to the week :)

Ode to my Alarm Clock

We were never a good pairing.
Face it, we were doomed from the start.
Incompatible in every single way.

I enjoy late nights at the computer writing,
and late mornings
Snuggled beneath the covers.

Dreams flow through my head.
I'm relaxed, muscled fluid,
No worries bearing down on me

That's when you speak up. 
Pierce the happy little cocoon
I drift within, weightless and free. 

You're loud. Rude, really,
with your constant BEEP BEEP BEEP
tearing me from slumber

Oh sure, you offer other options.
Rainfall, babbling brook, birds chirping,
and even the radio softly playing.

But, let's get real.
None of those will wake me,
none will get me out of bed.

No. Loathe as I am to admit it,
your annoying and incessant beeping
works; you get the job done.

So while we aren't a match made in heaven,
I will go to sleep, each night, with you by my side.
I may not like it, but you're here to stay.
