Insomnia

There’s no time to stop and lie in bed

ten thousand things are busy going round my head:

each thing less important than the last

but round they go all whirling fast –

and when I stop and hold onto one

the others run ’round again just for fun.

I’ve been lying here since four o’clock

but how this madness just won’t stop

and now just as my thoughts stay steady

arrives the dawn again – here already!

Now needs must: get up, get on

ten thousand things I must get done…
