Welcome to ….
Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too!
This is the brainchild of Rory at a guycalledbloke
These are his first four lines of the latest verse doing the rounds
Ode To The Insomniac!
Why do evade me so? It makes for no sense,
In truth, to do so unkindly and unwarranted, is nonsense!
I have tried counting all sorts, from stars to wide eyed sheep!
Yet still you , yes you decline me shut eye and valuable sleep!
Our additions so far:
Tossing and turning pulling blankets near,
What is that noise that I hear?
It is not the sandman come for me,
Why won’t you let me sleep dear?
Countless late night biscuits and black coffee,
Walking around like a spaced out zombie,
Listening to Cohen and Floyd on endless loop,
Convincing myself that no sleep is common in my age group.
I toss and I turn
Oh when will I learn
That sleep is at bay
On an Away Day
Lorraine then kindly tagged me via Rory:
The stars are so bright at this time of night,
I look forward to slumbering deep,
As I close my tired eyes, what a surprise,
The brain wakes and I can’t get to sleep!
