The Single Bed – A Poem
The Single Bed
a poem by Simon Camilleri 24/11/09
I only need a single bed.
Why would I buy a double?
Having such room for someone else
Would only lead to trouble.
I know some people like the space.
They like to sprawl and stretch,
But then you’d need a King-sized bed
When finally you get hitched!
And so, since now I sleep alone,
I’ll go to bed and dream.
Sleeping soundly in my single,
Looking forward to my Queen.
