Roadie Poet: Floor


I’m on the floor.
Hambone’s snoring in the bed.


Did you miss that part?
Looks like I did.
I’m on the floor.
On the floor.

Hambone’s got the bed.

More’s got the other one.

I’ve got the empties from last night’s party.
There’s a lot of ’em.

Two beds.
Three peeps.
One’s my girl.
Explains why we’re naked.

But not

    ROTFLMAO! I’ve been there. The one time I went to the FL Keys as an adult, I got drunk and was rather glad to be sleeping on the floor (we were camping- in a tent) considering how much the tent was moving. But that could just have been me. 🙂 (This was many [many] moons ago).

    I decided no linky with these posts; it’s too depressing to see 20+ people at Rhian’s and less than half that here. I didn’t need the glaring reminder that half the tribe can’t stand me.

    It’s like a math problem, trying to figure out how many people are naked, how many people are on the floor, how many people are in the room and on how many beds.

    Ah! A mystery poem! LOL! From my experience of working with roadies I think there might have been a word missing before that last ‘floor’ but that’s not polite in poetry circles! 🙂
