One of Those Mornings (Terza Rima Sonnet)

I was rudely awoken this morning
By a banana shoved into my face.
A monkey was giving me a warning

Chittering loudly enough to erase
The last tail of my sweet morning slumber.
I gave up; I had a monkey to chase,

When a penguin came with a cucumber
And started whacking away at my head.
I thought surely this meant that my number

Had just been called and that I was now dead.
But on pinching my arm to confirm that,
With both a penguin and monkey in bed,

I hissed once in pain, then twice at a cat
Now knitting mittens while pricking my feet,
But worse, I found, was the tap dancing rat

Who tapped my stomach to a hip hop beat.
And don’t ask about the hippo named Pete.

  1. I loved it! Yes, time for something lighter.

  2. Now THIS is different! *chuckle*

    1. Lol not everyone’s cup of tea but that’s okay as long as someone could get a laugh out of it. 🙂

  3. This sounds Seussical. I love it. It’s much better than my wake up. I had an alarm and a dog whining to get out.

    1. Lol well an alarm and dog doesn’t sound too bad…

      1. No. It’s more the dark and cold that get to me.

    1. You inspired me to learn how to use emojis in WordPress. 😁

    1. I feel like this is now an emoji thread 🤣
