Snoring in His Sleep

I never, ever snore
I said with a straight face.
She smiled and then
With twinkling eyes
And dignity and grace,
Said... "You snore so loud
I cannot go to sleep.
It's such a terrible sound --
My God --
The angels even weep."

She said "I'm going to show you,
I'll record you in the night
Enough of your denials
We'll listen at first light."
At break of dawn
She played the tape
I thought I heard her snicker.
The sound began
Slow and low
Then louder and much quicker!

I thought it was a train
Roaring through the dark!
A violent crash,
A bomb, perhaps
Set off by a spark?
Or maybe a volcano
A tsunami
Churning In the deep
Nah, it was just yours truly
Snoring in his sleep!

Cute...but a warning that you should go for a sleep study re possile sleep apnea, which is dangerous to your current and future health.
I know as I have sleep apnea and am aware of its dangers.
