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

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