HALL SHADOW

HALLWAY SHADOW

In a half-way state of sleep

And awake he turned around…

Saw a figure down the hall

Moving toward him without a sound!

The hooded specter said nothing

As it floated ever near….

He jumped out of bed twice as fast

Feeling oh, so queer…!

–Jonathan Caswell

LOUD ENOUGH?

LOUD ENOUGH?

He took an afternoon nap

Using his trusty C-PAP…

His alarm rang

And he sprang

In theory, to shut its trap!

But it kept ringing because

He forgot where it was…

The C-PAP machine

Was the best he could glean

But THAT didn’t stop the buzz!

Finally he awoke,

Feeling like a foolish bloke…

On the table beside

His head he spied

The alarm clock which he broke.
