To Night Shift and No Babysitter

Thirty hours without sleep
purple penguins at her feet
Tucker running round and round
Mommy eating coffee grounds

Hearing call bells in her head
oh how she longs to be in bed
To sleep, to sleep perchance to dream
of babbling brooks and rushing streams

Of sunny skies and rainbow trout
and small green froggies all about
Across the streets they try to hop
amongst the traffic, it won't stop

And yellow circles eating dots
chased by ghosts, oh see the spots
Of Dick & Jane, who see Spot run
And Jack & Jill, just having fun

Psychedelic floating butterfly
belly dancing hippopotami*
All end up in a traffic jam
and Mary had a little lamb.

By: one ass-tired Rissybutt

*Hippopotami really is the plural of hippopotamus (though hippopotamuses is
also acceptable)

Ugh! I am sorry that you are so tired .. and that tomorrow isn't your Thanksgiving.
Although I haven't worked and done the single mom thing in quite some time, I remember it well - but certainly not dearly!
I hope you get some sleep soon!
