Dawn is here
I did not sleep
Oh why oh why
Can’t my conscience let me sleep?

Did I kill little Bo Peep?
I might have 
As she should have been asleep
And not a practicing sneak

Dawn chorus some say is sweet
All I wish is to lie in bed in peace
Will all birds hence forth hold your incessant tweets
A man on tenterhooks 
Needs his precious sleep

Another day is born
Another sleepless night is done
If only I felt rested
And not like I just ran a marathon

Praise to all who can sleep through the night
I am not one 
And will forever envy your selfish delight

Dawn oh dawn why did you come so soon?
You came just when I was awaiting 
That soothing dream to appear
You can be so cruel and unfair 

New day that is dawn
You give much stress
I find your presence onerous to bear 
It is about time you played fair
And not harass me 365 days a year
