Feeling tired is fine at night
And much less helpful now
But when the time to sleep was right
My mind would not allow

Unconsciousness to find me
So in bed I lay alert
I couldn’t get my brain to see
That insomnia would hurt

Any chance of a productive day
So my work I can’t complete
Because I simply cannot find a way
To stay focussed and upbeat

Though coffee helped it didn’t cure
Overwhelming weariness
And so again I must endure
A day of heightened stress

And I really have a lot to do
So much I should achieve
As my tasks continue to accrue
I have no tricks up my sleeve

To help me stay on the right track
And I’m heading for mishap
So I think I’ll lie down on my back
And have a work-place nap

  1. Sleeping on the job is sound
    but you will find that once you’re found
    you may no longer be around
    you’re sacked!

    Head teachers tend to want you working
    and if they think that you are shirking
    within the school you’ll not be lurking
    get packed!

  2. My students all asked for a nap today. (They are in high school.) I shared my favorite meme about napping. It says, “Dear naps, I’m sorry I was such a jerk to you when I was a kid.” I miss naps but not enough to let my students take one. 🙂
