I’ve developed some bad habits
the first of which is keeping stressful jobs 
Not a real stressful job like a surgeon or a policeman or a president
Artificially induced by sadists, I guess
Who demand it get done today

Which makes sleep restless 
and I’ve started waking up before the alarm
And lay there, anxious, angry
sore shoulders not relieved by rolling

Watching my eyelids begin to lighten
wishing I could sleep again
Hating that first songbird
