Slumber Done – hour 1

My sleep is done

this ain’t no fun

am I the only one

who hates the morning?


My body says no

to work I won’t go

a few snoozes, tho

will it really help?


But this poem here

is ringing in my ear

this Saturday, I fear

i can’t sleep in.


Still in my bed

such a sleepy head

I should have instead

hit the pillow sooner!


I make excuses

but Dr. Seuss’s

mindset sluices

in and out of my brain.


This poem is done

bring on the sun

coffee is on

wake up, this girl is ready!
