Watching My Health - Poem by Leonard Dabydeen

Comes
home
to me
late at night
that I need to lose
weight for watchers of health programmes
then it dawns on me I am shedding too much to sleep.

Sleep lingers to watch me close my eyelids so tired now
as if long ago it did care
about me and my
overweight
watching
my
health.
