Late Nights

clock-1673583_960_720

Clock strikes midnight

A time most begin to fright

But I alas is the time for me to hit the hay

Staying up late

Is becoming harder to take

When I was a young man I would start my nights late

As I grow older if find it hard to stay awake

Now midafternoon is my time

Not too early and not too late

Of course I try to prevent this fate

I try an afternoon nap

I sleep in late

All to no avail

As summer comes and the sun’s setting becomes delayed

My need to go to sleep will be downplayed

So I guess it’s time to lay me down to sleep

Until my bladder makes we wake

But that’s another story all together
