I am wide awake for goodness sake
and it’s only a quarter to four
what do I bother sleeping for?
just wind me up and watch me run
flatter the modern me with a Duracell battery,
and where would you shove it?
Fluck and Law must have an image for
spitting feathers? I was,
but now I have coffee
so who needs a battery?
