Lurking Insomnia

 The wolf that hunts the sheep

Insomnia, that horrible creep

Constantly attacking innocent Sleep

The archer shoots his bow

Arrows of thought penetrate the brain

"Last call" The conductor yells "All aboard the night train"

Destination sunrise

Memorize infomercials that you'll tell to friends

Squandering the time

Trying to make "orange" rhyme

and wishing my shadows could talk

wondering what he would say?

Hit the treadmill and exercise

In a last effort to get tired

So you can close your eyes

but Insomnia, she still spies

The End
