JUST LIKE THAT

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Dec 02, 2017

It's one of life's great
mysteries
How frequently, at
night,
The TV lulls one off
to sleep
Despite the noise and
light.

But all this changes
when it's time
To snuggle down in
bed,
Husbands snore with
maddening ease,
While one counts 
sheep instead.

The old brain starts
to churn away,
And think of this
and that,
Like Lily's wedding
coming up,
So should one buy
a hat?

The front door needs
a coat of paint,
Would blue be best
or grey?
Then Buster has to
see the vet,
And what's for lunch
next day?

These thoughts keep
coming thick and 
fast,
Impeding any sleep,
The feeding of 
exhaustion is
Enough to make one
weep.

Oh no! The wretched
rubbish truck
Is trundling down
the lane,
It's time to get the
children up,
And face the world
again.

If there should be
another life,
I'll come back as a
cat,
To curl up in a comfy
chair
And doze off, just
like that.
