too early

too early to bed
is too early to rise
so instead of sleep
adopt a disguise
of a person quite lively
not sleepy at all
can’t quite stand up?
so lean on this wall
prop up your eyelids
and paint on a smile
quick drink some coffee
we’ll be here for a while
then as soon as the clock
hits a reasonable time
cast off the pretence
up to bed we will climb

I like to take photos and write words ...
