Not a Morning Person

Artist credit: Dan Duford

A warning, true,
that you ignored
brings much ado
and your reward.

This time it’s bad,
you woke the dead!
A curse, my lad,
is on your head:

Go make me some coffee!

    The coffee sounds about like my husband in the morning!

  4. Awesome to hear your spoken words on Soundcloud! I always love when people use technology to push the envelop a little, as it were. Kudos to you for being innovative and inspiring. I should be doing this, too. Hopefully, I will because i have a soundcloud account, too. Sometimes, we just need someone to bitch slap us on the head for us to see what we should have been doing all along. So, I consider myself so slapped! πŸ™‚

      Thank you! I was wondering if anyone noticed those audio clips. Definitely record your own, too. I liked the idea of being able to hear how an author envisioned their own work. Plus, it’s fun.

      • Oh my gosh, why is it that I just noticed that? That’s awesome. It feels so different to hear you read it. You do a much better job than I did. πŸ™‚ Thanks for linking up. Mmmmm. Coffee.
