A 15-pound Cricket

Last night as I snuggled into my cozy bed for a good nights sleep

I passed out.

Seeing as I am the world's heaviest sleeper,

this came at no extra surprise.

What was surprising was that I was awoken

by a sound.

Perched on the outside of my window

was a 15-pound cricket.

I have no idea how a cricket came to be so large,

or so well balanced on such a small windowsill.

But, I do know that his baritone chirp resonated quite nicely.

Every time I shifted though, it stopped.

Which led me to believe that it was inside my room!

Which reminded me of the fear of crickets and grasshoppers

that I inherited from my mother.
