I lay horizontal
As if there’s some other way,
It’s all I want to do really
Just eat, sleep and stay.
But, alas, there’s slamming,
And banging, and bouncing,
And barking, and growling,
And laughing, and crying.
How absurd to think I can just be,
In the midst of all this chaos,
And mayhem, and tomfoolery!
Sleep? Really? Did you mean weep?
Ah yes, weep, that sounds more like it!
Cry like a baby needing her blanket.
Perhaps that’ll get me the attention I need,
And for once I’ll be pampered like a queen.
Yeah, wishful thinking, I know, I know,
But it’s all I’ve got in this moment of woe.
Deep breaths, count from 10, close my eyes,
Doze, oh crap, what the heck is that NOISE!
