Why Bananas Help You Sleep

Written by: Gary Bovett

Bananas are
As a rule
Fun to have around
All yellow and soft
And curvy
So delicious when they're peeled

They'll ride around with you
All day wherever you go
As a rule
Without complaining
Apart from the odd occasion
When the journey's been a little long
They’ll hint with their own particular perfume


At the end of a long day
You lay the banana
Face up
On the pillow next to you
It smiles
Knowingly

Should you fall asleep
It will still be there
In the morning
Smiling
Inviting
Tempting
A quick snack before breakfast
