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
    keep getting up to look in the mirror and tell me how great I am.
    I am also the best poet in the world.
    A good poem by the way. (Report) Reply

    I know just what you mean. I stopped smoking two weeks ago.
    I'm finding it very hard sleeping at the min. A great poem. (Report) Reply
