The hippo snugged beside me snores,
And blows billowy bubbles I’ve learned to ignore.
Big blasted pink ones that pop when she snuffles,
That gum up the linens and goo up the ruffles.
And once, even gobbed up the ceiling fan blades,
With bubble gum gobbled in gum bubble shades.
But mostly, the troubles are easy as clover–
Except when she sneezes her bubbles all over!
