TIRADE A-1.2: GETTING UP IN THE MORNING:
Just heard something about some poet laureate or other who made it a point to write a poem every morning before he got up. Sure would be nice to be a poet laureate who has the time to write something every morning. I tried to be one, but when I looked in the Help Wanted section of the paper, I couldn’t find any poet laureate positions open. In the spirit of do-it-yourselfism I wondered what it would be like for one of us regular working stiff types to do this morning poem stuff ourselves. Here’s what mine would sound like:

GETTING UP IN THE MORNING, by Brian Jensen, poet laureate of the middle of the middle block, west side of Wakenden street between Grand River and Seven Mile Roads, third or forth house from the corner.
(and I quote myself):

(RINGGGGG)
Aaaacck! Glumph! Whazzat noise? Oh the alarm…is it time to get up already? I don’t want to get up. I really don’t want to get up. It’s too early to get up. Which way is up, anyway???

OK OK I’m up already..I combed my teeth, brushed my hair…time to make lunch. Oops, my eyes aren’t open yet….I’ll just grab anything …make my lunch anyway…there it is. Oh NOW my eyes are open. Let’s see what I made for lunch…ohh gee. That’s OK,… maybe canned peas actually taste good with maple syrup and chocolate chips on them.…eww! What’s this stuff on my sandwich? What’s that, dear? No, I have no idea where the dog’s food has gone….

Just five more minutes, just five more minutes, just five more minutes please!!!!

Just five more minutes, just five more minutes, just five more minutes please!!!!

OK OK this one is my car….Hello neighbor, sorry I set off your car alarm. Why yes, as a matter of fact, my pants are on backward. Newest youthful trend, y’know. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. By the way, is this your cat peeing on my leg?…

Just five more minutes, just five more minutes, just five more minutes please!!!!

(YOWLL MEOWWR YOWLL) Oops sorry kitty cat! That’s what happens when you leave your head laying around where it can get stepped on. Hey that’s strange…this can’t be my car. I don’t remember it being on fire last night….OMIGOSH LOOK AT THE TIME!!!

Oops, cheap lunch bag…I’ll have to come back out here during lunch and get everything that just fell through the bottom…Hey, what’s this? There’s a sign on the door. What’s it say?
(CLOSED FOR THE HOLIDAYS)

Just five more minutes, just five more minutes, just five more minutes PLEASE!!!!

What’s that dear? Why yes, as a matter of fact I am curled up in the fetal position in the crawlspace. Latest youthful trend, y’know. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. What’s that? Oh, I’ll be staying here until the end of the world or so. Enjoy the holidays! Do you want to go see a parade? There’s one at the intersection…..
