OR,  watching the hours pass …

Counting sheep at 1am

So far sleep’s eluded

Ready for long night ahead

I have now concluded

~~~

Racing brain at 2am

Jumbled thoughts whiz round

Make no sense most of the time

Reason can’t be found

~~~

Wide awake at 3am

Body’s screaming out

Conflict with the inner man

What’s this all about ?

~~~

Birdsong starts at 4am

Just outside my window

Voices trill – imparting thrill

Choruses and solo

~~~

Toss and turn at 5am

Shall I make a drink

No, I’ll wait another hour

Drearily, I think

~~~

Getting up at 6am

Busy day ahead

Wondering if by 1pm

I’ll be almost dead

~~~

Half asleep at 2pm

Perhaps I’ll get the sack

Impossible to concentrate

Pitiful insomniac !
