      Saturday Mornings by Mike Montreiul

      Waking up
      from the dream of another...
      Come, will you drink from my cup?

      A first thought...
      I recognize that odd voice;
      not quite cut from the same cloth.

      Elmer Fudd,
      Saturday morning cartoons,
      falling again in the mud.

      It's a game...
      I used to remember too,
      waking up, pretending lame.

      Make it fast
      was my one favorite wish,
      watching Dad make the breakfast.

      My turn now;
      pancakes are made as he did.
      Not enough time for a wow,

      Time to go!
      Too many errands need me.
      When will I ever be slow?

      Waking up
      from the dream of another...
      Come, will you drink from my cup?
