DSC06221.JPGWhy do I have inertia so profound

In going to bed for a sleep sound

Glued I am to my computer screen

Why doesn’t the bed inviting seem?

When I finally trudge to bed

I’ll be checking my phone instead

Of closing my eyes to try to sleep..

Why don’t I yearn for slumber deep?

Tossing and turning, finally I succumb

To deep sleep, my resistance finally overcome.


In the sanguine morning, once again

When it’s time to wake up, inertia reigns

Now I cannot my languid limbs force

Into a vertical posture; in due course

I fling myself out of bed when I see

My bedside alarm clock ticking away furiously


I fault this inertia which leads me

To procrastinate both ways endlessly

I fantasize about sleeping on time every night

And waking at the crack of dawn, ready for flight

If that happens even once, I will let you know

Goodbye for now, off to bed I must go!
