I am so sleepy, and still so tired.
I didn’t sleep well, as I desired.
My brothers snore throughout the night,
And sound like two bears in a fight.
Mother sleepwalks down the halls.
She bumps and bangs into the walls.
My dad becomes hungry when he dozes.
Then the fridge door opens and closes.
Our dog is skittish and prone to bark,
At all of these noises in the dark.
Each morning they’re set to charge ahead,
And I just want to go to bed.
