Nights are hell
Tic toc tic toc
Cats are screaming
Tic toc tic toc
It’s twelve o’clock

Sleep escapes me
Tic toc tic toc
My mind is reeling
Tic toc tic toc
It’s one o’clock

The calendar beckons
Tic toc tic toc
Pages crawling forward
Tic toc tic toc
It’s two o’clock

Smart phone whispers
Tic toc tic toc
Thumbing through photos
Tic toc tic toc
It’s three o’clock

Sleep overcomes me
Tic toc tic toc
Dreaming of losses
Tic toc tic toc
It’s four o’clock

The world awakens
Tic toc tic toc
Motors are revving
Tic toc tic toc
It’s five o’clock

Other creature’s schedules
Tic toc tic toc
Cats demanding breakfast
Tic toc tic toc
It’s six o’clock

Showers and coffee
Tic toc tic toc
Me gently sleeping
Tic toc tic toc
It’s seven o’clock
