I really needed to get up, and out of bed

But my alarm clock just kept ringing, instead

Seems I stayed up too late, with the crickets

Then got caught in a speed trap, ugh! A ticket!

I’m always like this, so this day was the same

Got to work, new excuse, the cops are to blame

Made my coffee, then spilled it, don’t you see?

Early mornings are not quite meant for me

Let the day continue, and when it’s time

And midnight approaches, wondrous, sublime

I’m far more comfortable, as one with the night

Letting the moon, in the dark, be my light
