In the panes of the bedroom window
Are etched the sleepless nights
Of worthless worries collected
The days troubles not released
Keeping the mind unbearably active
A most inconsiderate sleeping companion
Until I clear the storage bin
Of the accumulated waste
That has me up in the witching hours
And playing flute and sleepy music
In desperation to reclaim my sanity and humour
Stolen by too many eves of wakefulness
