Keeping Me in Bed

by joetwo

There are some things keeping me in bed
It is far too cold outside
You could hang meat out there
I’d freeze in seconds
Better stay where it is cozy
I’d be too early as well
If I was to go now it would be silly
I doubt there is a bus now
I’d be a fool to try and walk it
Mostly, and I probably won’t say this to anyone else
It is because I want to spend
Those few more precious minutes
Lying next to you, silent as a church mouse
By far the best part of my day
