It's four o'clock in the a.m.
and I've been awake since three.
I've read the paper,
been to the loo,
had a cup of tea.
I've mellowed down,
I've breathed deep.
I'll be up at six.
I need to sleep.
But at four o'clock in the a.m.
I'm as awake as I was at three.

Gee, sorry to hear about the insomnia. Do you get like this often? I'm fortunate that it's something I don't suffer from (yet, fingers crossed). Tea probably isn't a good idea, though, unless it's camomile. Hope you get some rest soon.

Maybe things will get back to normal when you get rid of your visitors - or when the play is finally played and over! :-)
