Sleepless Nights

This morning I looked a terrible sight Why do I get the urge to write at night? Had this poem running around my head When I should have been fast asleep instead Decided to watch a bit of T.V. Something about a chimpanzee Couldn’t get settled at all last night I turned off the T.V. and saw daylight I’ll not sleep now, I knew for sure Those twittering birds, please no more Couldn’t stop yawning, eyes filled with tears Then I went and got hot ears So got up and made a cup of tea And wrote this poem for all to see Was going to submit this poem, then rest But I fell asleep at my computer desk. Well here's the poem now complete Posted in this contest to compete There'll be more sleepless nights, don't I know it It's the dreaded curse of the midnight poet
