A chapter in the book Sunnilicious' NaPoWriMo, April 2021

Early Riser

by sunnilicious

I wake up half hour before my alarm clock
And listen intently at those noisy tick tocks,
As I jump from the bed into slippers and stretch,
Before I run to the restroom like it's a sketch
And wonder, if everyone takes a 2-minute pee.

I wash up my fresh face like a true busy bee
In a fluster to strike a match for that candle;
Peach, the scent of sexy feet in summer sandals.
Then, I take a minute for a daily prayer,
And chug down a liter of water over there.
