I Can't Get Up

It can’t be morning
Nine is still night
I’m still dreaming
Go away, sunlight

But it’s time to get up
No it can’t be
Alarm clock, shut up
You can’t be talking to me

My eyes are still closed
My body feels like mud
My legs are stuck to it so
I’m officially a bed spud

I’m struggling with strife
At last I bedraggle out of bed
Oh please, it’s not worth my life
My legs are solid led

They’re glumped to the floor
I try to crawl with no energy
Since I’m empty to the core
I can’t do it, don’t you see?

I yawn into the quicksand
Of my sheets and blankets
Onto my pillow I crash-land
Boy that took some sweat

But who would care?
It’s summer on a Saturday
It’s completely fair
Time to hit the hay

Great! and that's a good idea to keep a notebook near you like that. when i get inspired i have to go scrounging around for whatever paper i can find, and by then i already forget some of what i was going to say lol.
