DAWN, THE PERFECT WAY TO TOP OFF THE DAY

They make fun of me
those early morning types.
They think their way is best
but it’s just a bunch of hype.

They think they run the world
but it’s only a coffee high.
They go off like bottle rockets
which disappear into the sky.

They poop out shortly after night falls
when anything left undone
will stay that way until they come alive again
when the night is displaced by the sun.

They are the reverse
of vampires
or werewolves
howling at the dawn instead of the moon.

That’s why I stay safe in my bed
away from the fray
until they burn off some energy
or just go away.

Me, I keep on going.
I can get it done.
I go for as long it takes
even if it means from sun to sun.

Cats and dogs, mice and cats
it’s the tension that makes the world go ’round.
People of the sun, people of the moon
can’t we meet somewhere in the middle?

… like maybe noon?

  1. I really liked this. But, the idea of noon….not so much. How about 10am. You do copius amounts of work during the night when no one bothers you. Great job!
