I am the one who lies awake,
I wish I weren't, I hate the woke.
God, let me sleep, for pity"s sake,
My hand, don't reach and with one stroke
Turn on the screen before dawn’s break
And make me read and scroll and poke
And click and sigh and tutt and make
My mind more active. Slam the brake,
Stall the engine, don"t provoke
With Mail Online and Breitbart News,
Confirming all my bleakest views,
Attempt not humour, don't amuse,
Respond to aspirin downed with booze,
Leave me to drift, dream, doze, snore, snooze.
