Can’t sleep, brain won’t sleep
Too many thoughts run deep
Come on cerebrum your day is done!
Unable to sleep is no fun!
Thoughts race around Brainshatch
Chasing sleep I cannot catch!
Why? Why does sleep evade me?
Too many thoughts to leave be,
Too hot, too cold, plans afoot
For a future currently caput!
A day producing unbearable ennui
Followed by a night that is sleep free!
How to tire this frontal lobe ?
At 3am - as dawn wakes the globe-
Allow the word smith to compose-
Allow this verse of words to dispose
The thoughts inside my head-
Record in rhyme from my bed!
Now with fingers tightly crossed
No more sleep from this night is lost!
As now I have recorded all of them! -
Whilst I couldn’t sleep - yes - at 3 am!
