Insomnia!

My thoughts they race.
My legs they twitch.
Insomnia! I am your bitch.


I might have spent the day flaked out
awake but foggy, on the couch
(because of what you did to me,
late last night 'til after 3),
but when I then concede the day's defeat
and lie down gratefully to sleep,
you pick me up and shake me out!
My synapses are full of doubt
that it is time for me to sleep.
Insomnia, you make me weep!

And when I decide to be bold
and keep moving, like we're told,
do you keep away then, like you should?
No. (I didn't think you would).

Insomnia, you are a bitch.
When I think of you, my fingers twitch.
I know you'll do just what you will

until I take

my


special pill. Insomnia


it's beating you.

The magic pill says fuck you and ninja throws
a sharpened star while elephants talk about their par
3 golf course for the mini-golf crowd who can,

I've heard
get pretty loud at breakfast when it's
had in bed
oh look I
think


the

bitch


is



dead.
