Sleep Addiction

I blogged too late the night before,
Not taking of my rest a score,
So when it came to sleep,
I carried on for all today,
And did not bring the blog to play,
But simply counted sheep.

Hey nonny-nonny, nonny, hey,
I’m filled up with lie down and stay.

Now that it is another day,
I do not know quite what to say;
So think I’ll carry on
With resting for today as well,
And then in bed may as well dwell
Until the day is gone.


As for the night, well, easy that,
I feel like sleeping more than chat,
So may as well just doze
Until the night has also flown;
Unnatural, I freely own —
Maybe the meds they chose?

    Oft I burn the midnight oil
    For in darkness I like to toil.

    They say lost sleep one cannot regain
    and shortens one’s time in this reign.

    But methinks life’s years I’d gain
    equals the time that sleep I feign.

    For one cannot will sleep to come
    and ones plans to rest come undone.

    Eh, the cadence is awkward, but I ain’t got the skilzs for this kind of writing.

    I could with something to help me sleep, though I’d rather not have the ones you have and for obvious reasons! 🙂


  4. Medications can definitely make you feel tired and sleepy. Maybe it is best to rest.


You have the right to remain silent - but please don't!
