Wake Up Calls

If I had to be woken up early
I guess I’d rather it be by owls
Their long Os are soothing to me

This really happened one day
Once when my wife woke at 3 am
In order to teach her online class, yay

The second sound was jarring, ah
My wife’s alarm sound is of an old
Time-y car horn: Ah-woooooo-gah

Again, I prefer the initial Os
Of one owl talking to another
Peacefully: Who-ooo-oo-oo-oo

I wonder if they were settling in for the night
From doggedly hunting their prey down all day
