It’s way past my curfew
There goes the whole night
I’ll be up past the moon
See the sun glisten bright

The caffeine’s kicking in
Too much coffee ingested
Can’t waste any of it
When there’s creamer invested

I won’t dump a whole pot
Down the drain, just because
My body needs sleep
But my mind doesn’t pause

I have to keep writing
Get the words out of my head
There’s no time, like the present
I can sleep, when I’m dead

So I’ll make me another
Might as well stay awake
Make it into Guinness’ book
For the longest coffee break
