Getting her out of bed

not easy, nor fun

but I had an idea


“What if I climb in bed

next to you, that should work?”


No response

“Is it your boyfriend?”, I asked

“Doesn’t he like company?”


“I’m not sure, what his response

will be”, she replied. “When are you coming over?”


“Tell him, that those 6 Time Zones

between us, might delay me a bit”

Not trying to sound negative of course,


“That might just work”, she said

“That will give him time to adjust”

and with that she rolled over, and fell back asleep


Well, I never. Women!

This long-distance affair will be the death of me,

I’m sure….
