Title: No Sleep

Oh sweet slumber, why are you
so hard to attain?
I've done all the suggestions
to bridle you and train.

Hot baths, soft scents
and tranquil sounds
are no match for you
you stand your ground.

Let me go to SLEEP!
Tommorrow is a big day!
I'll have a migarine
from no sleep, I say!

I've worn myself out
trying to go to sleep
counting clouds
and jumping sheep.

Oh the hell with it
I'll take a pill
Thank God something works
and I can get still.
