How loud the clock ticks
Now my feet are cold
Perhaps I'll pop on some socks?
How bright is that shiny new moon?
I'll have to get up and close that crack in the curtain soon
Now, my eyes are shut..real tight
I still have the power of sight!
Today's journey,yesterday's memories,tomorrow's dreams
All in technicolour can clearly be seen
Try to think of something boring
Try counting sheep?
I've named them all,one by one,
As over the fence they leap!
Do that thing your mother taught
From your toes to your scalp
relax!..don't get fraught..
Now the lamp's going on
And a chapter I'm reading
I've worked up a thirst
Now it's water I'm needing
Only four hours left
Till the alarm finds it funny
To shriek!!..at my incompetence
As dark turns to sunny..
