I cannot sleep
wide awake
let me go
for goodness sake.

I toss and turn
like a restless dog
the wheels have stopped
with a broken cog.
My mind so active
it never stops
like thieves and robbers
being chased by cops!
Try counting sheep
got to the end
this restless night
I cannot defend.
Go have a drink
to settle your mind
think of happy things
try to be kind.
Eventually you fall
into a deep sound sleep
but what time was it?
you did not keep!
Up in the morning
still dead tired
so to you my dear brain
you are FIRED.
