You sound like a pig

A triolet, I think 🙂 Shhh


Tell me why do you snore so loud in bed,
shaking the pictures and walls ?
The noises you make drill straight through my head,
tell me why do you snore so loud in bed.
When there’s nose clips to wear or oils to be spread
and you just sleep through it all.
Tell me why do you snore so loud in bed
shaking the pictures and walls ?

Tell me why do you sound like pig she said,
digging my ribs with her fist?
each night you find a new nerve to shred
Tell me why do you sound like pig she said,
please sleep down stairs or simply desist
there’s moments I wish you didn’t exist.
Tell me why do you sound like pig she said,
digging my ribs with her fist?

Could not help but laugh at the perspectives you’ve presented. Lovely poem.

In my reading I found humour, then in my contemplating I sensed discord – even anger. C’est la vie n’est pas! However your poem itself is entertaining,and certainly seems like a triolet to my understanding.

This really hurt. I mean, that is me; my wife berates me, and it is when the wine flows too easily. To make matters worse, our dog sleeps beside my side of the bed – and he joins in!
