Twas two weeks before Christmas

Updated on December 9, 2012

And all is not well....

Twas two weeks before Christmas and oh, woe is me

night has again fallen

I unplug the tree

My soft bed does beckon

but as usual-Alas-

my husband's sleep antics

are a pain in the ass.

He tosses and turns

and hogs the whole bed

while visions of daggers

dance in my head

I spring up from slumber

my patience long gone

and sit in the dark

looking forward to dawn

For hours on end

I plan and I scheme

how do I fix this?

I want to just scream

I crawl back in bed

pull covers to chin

I move my leg over

and kick in his shin

He mumbles and turns

and I smile in delight

Merry Christmas to me!

I finally sleep through the night.
