Count the sheep

That do bleat

Sleep Sleep

Don’t count time

Shut your eyes

Peep Peep

Calm your mind

You’re behind

Sleep Sleep

Grab your nets,

Hunting blinds

Sheep Sheep

Eyes kept closed

Don’t show those

Peep Peep

It caught you

What to do?

Now tired

Not wired

Sleep Sleep

So Sallow

Too Shallow

Deep Deep

Crawling Up

Catching Up

Creep Creep

REM Attack

Vivid Black

Deep Sleep

Peel your eyes

Stay alive

For your sake

Now avoid

The dark void

Leaving Me”

“Need to rest

I confess”

Weak Weak

“Sleep’s catching

I’m lacking”

Drink Caffeine

To stay keen

Get through this

Stimulant

From a plant

Beans Beans

One more cup

Drink it up

“Now I’m Up

That’s enough”

Now at Home

Sleep is prone

Sleep Sleep

Dress in silk

Glass of milk

Drink Drink

Lay in bed

Rest your head

Sleep Sleep

Start to drift

Through the rift

Deep Deep

Off to sleep

Shephard’s sheep

Deep Sleep

Sleep, The Race

Breathing Pace

Sheep Sheep

Tend the flock

Shephard’s Rock

Sleep Sheep

Get the best

Of your rest

Sweet Peace
