It’s 10pm, Oh no, not again
No Internet or T.V…
I could take a pee,
Or pick up a pen,
Or maybe read “Little Red Hen”
Ready for bed, but not yet to sleep
I look up and stare at the ceiling
And say, “Boo Hoo, Oh no, not again”,
Wish I could shake this odd feeling.
I could hum a song
And say a quick prayer
All this to help me to sleep,
But, then again, a tried and true trick,
I guess I’ll just have to count sheep!
And, so it goes, as it usually does,
I feel myself start to get drowsy.
And Thank God I used my writing again
As to rid of this dread,
And not to eat bread,
And run from this feeling of lousy!
Good Night, one and all,
And to God I will pray,
Blessed dreams and sweet kisses
Wish lots of good wishes
And look toward the new dawning day.
