Poetry by Jeff Green


Rubbish written instead of sleeping

A stupid man is writing rhyme
In the midst of sleeping time
Why are here wasting time
Reading out this sleeping rhyme

I should be sleeping in my bed
I really am a sleepy head
Why would you choose to fill your head
You could be cuddled up in bed

I’m in a chair to tired to move
Of my state I don’t approve
Who in right mind could ever approve
Of losing sleep for want of move

This repetitious rhyming scheme
Is bad but seems to suit my theme
Although that is a silly theme
So to go to bed is now my scheme

Author notes

I fell asleep in my chair after drinking the last cuppa of the day.
