Long running

Half awake and not nearly enough asleep
I should keep shorter hours,
get wired to the terminal
pump out something seminal
and no!
not fluid.

Life can be hard
then it’s off to the
knackers yard
to be
knackered?
strange
I thought I already was.

But tomorrow is another way
to keep today as yesterday
and
I think being semi-comatose
I know how this thing goes
and I am going
now.
