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…
