HAS ANYONE OUT THERE GOT A CURE
Went to bed (the coffin)
about 10 pm shattered
and awoke around 2 am
as if someone had switched
me on like a fucking vacuum cleaner.
It's the same every night
drunk or sober:
has anyone out there got a cure
apart from shagging your balls off?
I'm a bit past my sell by date for that;
maybe I should invest
in a vibrating bed!
And don't talk to me about pills:
I've taken calmers, downers,
tried witchcraft, deep breathing, healing
and read books until I'm daft.
Has anyone out there got a cure?
It's 6 am in the morning
and even the moon has gone to sleep:
the milkman arrives as I hear him
open and close his van door,
maybe some breakfast
with some fresh tea,
