Poetry 101, Day 3: Sleep

SLEEP

bed-731162_1920

Dearest Sleep my friend and foe
What peculiar times you come and go

While at work my eyes do close
But in bed I will not doze

Once asleep I hear me snore
Can’t be me I’ll just ignore

Try as I might I cannot scream
Oh thank goodness it’s a dream

Weekend’s here sleep in late
Up at six can’t fight fate

Owl of the night is who I be
Early birds have I set free

I say that beauty is what I need
Please let me rest so I’ll succeed

So long, farewell I say goodnight
And to my bed bugs, please don’t bite
