Me and the Beasts

Each night I sleep with three furry beasts
They snuffle, they tussle, they snore
They covet the covers, they purloin the pillows
I often get pushed to the floor!

Each night I sleep with three furry beasts
It's so cozy and warm when they're near
But sometimes things get a little too close
Which one is that licking my ear?!!

Each night I sleep with three furry beasts
One's big, and two are quite small
But with three men and me in one little bed
It's a wonder that I sleep at all!

Do we live in parallel worlds? I sleep with two miniature poodles and a wife, one of them snores. I end up going to the recliner to sleep every night. I once wrote a poetic 'diddy' about this scenario. See, told you we must live in parallel universes.

nene: Whoa-synchronicity! The Maltese is an aberration for me. I've always had poodles, but we saw this little guy on an adoption site and my daughter fell in love with him. Of course, whose bed does he sleep in? Not hers!

How delightful ... We share our bed with 6 -- usually the girls ... the boys sleep elsewhere! Go figure!! Congratulations!!
