Once again

When you want to wake up,

what does it take?

Do you, drink some coffee

but desire a stake?

When you want to sleep

what does it take?

Do you, count some sheep

with a McNyquil shake?

When you can't stop thinking of her

do you, call up another

as you begin to slur?

When you call out to God

answer me now!

Do you, get a busy signal

and try back tomorrow?

When you finally realize

this is the end

Do you, sit back and just pretend,

that someday you'll hold her once again?

Do you,

Do you do what I do?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
