Dreaming Right About Now

IMG_20180315_035532567.jpg

I’d rather be dreaming but I don’t know how

It was all going great till I had to pee

I’ve had Melatonin and Sleepy Time Tea

My work pile’s  a mile high and awaits only me

I’d rather be dreaming right about now.

 

I’d rather be dreaming, heavy hangs the brow

but a rogue thought sparked and a fire it stoked

and all the peace and quiet, is successfully provoked

though I chased it down, and wrestled it, its mercy I invoked

I’d rather be dreaming, but I don’t know how.

 

I’d rather be dreaming right about now

Seems 2 AM was ten hours ago, and now 3:56.

I lie here exhausted, I’ve emptied my bag of tricks,

Send a man to the moon, but this I can’t fix

I’d rather be dreaming… so heavy hangs the brow…
