My head is a mash of ideas
All churning and bubbling around
One pops to the surface for an instant
And is gone as it silently drowns

Tiredness drains my batteries
Every step or thought is a chore
I feel so empty and lethargic
I can’t concentrate anymore

Vitamin B’s the answer they said
So I took it faithfully for ages
No difference at all, I still feel low
I need a holiday but not on these wages
