Blanket Thieves

Blanket Thieves

twang of duelling banjoes play

as nightly ritual starts

he rolls into deeper rest

pulling…pulling…pulling

comforter, pillow and sheets closer

she suffers cold buttocks and drafty arms

so she yanks even harder

rolling into a cocoon

he calls the “crocodile death barrel roll”

battle of wills…

his, hers, his, hers, his, hers, his, hers

who will win?

nightly dance of blanket thieves

  1. Haven’t we all struggled with this. In my case, i am fighting my wife and the four small dogs (which grow incredibly large at night) for even a napkin sized piece of the blanket. Good luck to you, my sympathies :).
