Slept 8 Hours Straight

By Wayne F. Burke

Slept 8 Hours Straight

woke and
went outside
everything so beautiful
sparkling blue and
electric-green
fluffy cotton clouds
and a dead beaver
unlucky fellow by
the roadside
killed by a car
the day not so beautiful
for him
he is building a log-jam
in coonskin heaven now
he has made the bugs and
insects happy and
grateful to be alive
for such a stupendous snack
never did they even
imagine.
