I Can't Sleep - Poem by Armistead Lindsey

I think my body clock,
It's disorientaged.
It's been dropped into a person,
With obligations to life at day,
And a concern for thought at night.

Who to see?
What to do in situation x?
How to solve problem y?

Add insult to injury,
Make the body a poet,
Whose brain needs emptying,
More times than a hotel bin.

Rub the salt in,
Give the body an early morning,
A job based on shifts,
Then try and settle.

I can't sleep!
