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
