Hey bed,
Hey clock,
Hey ceiling,

It's me, applying for another sleepless night

    I too have trouble sleeping. It's because I'm so fantastic I have to

    I am also the best poet in the world.
    A good poem by the way. (Report) Reply

    I'm finding it very hard sleeping at the min. A great poem. (Report) Reply
