1719 – Sleepwalking

That dog totally is faking.

Not Sleepy

Oh no, not feeling sleepy.
Don’t need to go to bed.
This pillow here is only
to rest my aching head.
My eyelids were not drooping –
ignore what you just saw.
Oh no, I wasn’t yawning.
I only stretched my jaw.
You didn’t hear me snoring –
I think you heard me cough.
Just leave me here not sleeping
(but switch those lights to off).
