Puss’s Purr Alarm

Good morning everyone,

The Ragtag Daily Prompt this morning is PURR
The Word of the Day prompt is HELPFUL

I can’t blame Pookie for my 4:00 am rising this morning; I just couldn’t sleep. One of the woes of old age, I gather. But this little verse, my quickly crafted response to the prompt, applies from time to time. I suspect only a cat lover will truly understand. ūüėČ

This persistent purr
in my ear at 5:00 am…
Helpful tones from Mr Pook
a soporific song to soothe
and comfort my weary mind?
Not a chance!

Rather, this gentle gesture
his “Get up and feed me” tune;
those accompanying pats
may seem as tender touches,
but I don’t kid myself:
the alarm is sounding.

If I continue to malinger
this beginning bland hint
will morph into a full-fledged
song-and-dance routine
that will definitely
prohibit further sleep.

Prior planning the key
to sweet dreams; if I long
for a long, restful night,
I must ensure my puss’s purr
stays on the other side
of my bedroom door.
