Sleep, sleep, where’er you are

On the head of a pin

Or feather bed with downy pillow

Til suddenly jarred

Awake you are!

With cat’s subtle purr

And head-butting

Alarm is past!

And panic on!

Work is waiting

No time for breakfast

No time for news

Rush out the door and realise

Still wearing bedroom shoes!

Be glad you even have shoes on!
