DAWN

I went to bed expecting I would sleep
 Hours later I am wide awake
 It is no use me counting sheep
 Things are on my mind
 So I cannot sleep

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

A cacophonous chorus greets the new day
Some say is sweet
But all I want to say to them is 
Go away

All I wish is to lie in bed in peace
I implore all birds to hence forth hold their 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
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 now here
You give much stress and
I find your presence onerous to bear
It is about time you played fair
And not harass me 365 days a year
