ode to an electric blanket

I got an electric blanket yesterday. This thing is freaking awesome. I love it so much I wrote a poem about it.

electric blanket

Dear electric blanket
I bought you yesterday
You were so freakin' expensive
But gladly I did pay.

Yet, electric blanket
I must complain some more
That ugly baby blue
Was the last color left at the store.

But oh, my electric blanket
When I got you home
And plugged you in and heated you up
You were so soft and warm!

I need you, electric blanket
To come to my rescue, please
For my internal body temperature
Hovers at 97.5 degrees

I wish I could stay forever
With you my electric blanket
And never leave the couch
But my husband couldn't take it!

So dear electric blanket
I must leave you for a while
the housework must be done
laundry waits in a pile

But come tonight, when the kids go to bed
My dear electric friend
I'll meet you back here on the couch
To snuggle until day's end.
