Rumbling in the night

"Oh please God, make it stop!” she whimpered.

She first noticed it when she awoke in the dead of night.

A rasping sound which was growing louder as she listened.

She nudged her husband beside her, but he didn't stir.

Louder still and rumbling, increasing in volume until she could bear it no longer.

She nudged him again, harder this time but still nothing.

She covered her ears and pulled the pillow over her head.

“Oh please God, make it stop!” she whimpered.

But it didn't stop; it just got louder and deeper.

In desperation, she shook her husband violently and shouted,

“Pleeease, Danny, wake up! I can't stand your snoring any longer!”
