Poem of the Week-Lions Sleep

Pride of lions

Praying for sleep tonight

4:30 A.M. pissing

Wakes my inner-insomnia

Drag the next two hours

Of Mindful meditation

Hypochondriac coughs

And irritable gas

Obsession rules the

Morning dew

Am I like?

Dorothy

Why oh why can’t I?

My joking line

You will be so proud of me

For fixing the light bulb

Where in the mighty jungle

Is my pride?

Lost or found

Never fighting

Or standing up

Unless it’s my comedy

standup

Lions sleep tonight

REM speed wagon

Slumber me
