Monday I’m groggy
Want to stay in my bed

Tuesday’s a bit better 
But wish I were dead

Wednesday is hump day
I don’t care one single bit

Thursday’s pre-Friday 
And I’m ready to quit

Friday drags on
I need a few beers

Saturday’s cheerful
No need to shed...Read More

Early to bed and early to rise,
So my mother said,
Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
So, come on, get out of bed.
Assumed if it rhymed it must be true,
So I rose from my bed full of pep.

Having a bad day ?

Then quit while you are ahead 

And retire early to bed

For tomorrow can only be a better day

If today couldn't possibly get any worse 

Hopefully Sleep and Dreams

It was not yet noon
when Ben said
a host of lovely things.
As far as we know,
no one accused him
of being publisher shy,
or sleeping in.

Ben said,
Early to bed
Early to rise
Makes a man,
and perhaps women and children more especially too,
and Wise.

Early to bed
and early to rise
morning glory

the cookie
still flat on the sheet
lazy kids

he tenses
on ready to sprint
the wild cat

at half mast
the flag begs raising
un-baked cake

the small child
learning his manners
thinking twice

Too Wired For Bedtime
The scratchy fog will not alight,
upon the eye's shield to the night.
On upward drafts of rumination,
Hypnos whirls past his noble station.
Like Greeks concealed inside the steed,
thoughts - swords drawn - wait to be freed,
upon a mind in blind delight,
which had...Read More

Today I found my long lost Pet Rock

Go ahead, ask if I'm happy

I found him on the side of the road
Just relaxing at doing nothing

Constant dipping wears out the hardest bone.
Out of sight, out of bind.
Too many cooks spoil the school books.
Be a cuckoo and lay your eggs at the cuckold’s next door.
When lightning strikes, the fire-brigade rides.

Early vs Late
Early vs. Late
Dr. James E. Martin
©January, 2014

An early start was his intent,
To accomplish this goal he must not relent.
A problem, however, arose in the mix,
Too many late hours he had earlier spent.

He speedily discovered to his dismay
That he could not...Read More
