Sleep Is For The Week

Monday evening,
getting dark
but you’re still drunk,
locked in the park

Tuesday morning,
still awake,
waiting for the day to break

Wednesday noon,
the sun is shining,
bed sheets clean
and mind declining

Thursday dawn,
Each sleepless night,
a caffeine junkie
‘I’m Alright’.

Friday, late,
you’re at the bar,
a miracle
you got this far

Through the night
to Saturday,
your aching bones
and limbs will sway

And finally
the day of rest
you’ve made it through
you are the best
a round of applause
clap clap,
clap clap,
put life on pause
and take a nap.

~ Andrew
Some people just don’t seem to sleep.. this is how I imagine their week goes

  1. Brilliant Andrew! Sounded just like my life as a Tow Truck Operator & being on the road when Hubby & I did long distance trucking….
    You captured the non stop reality well….
