Stupid O'clock nonsense.

Nettac profile image

I've been up since 3 am with pain in the knee. Got up made a cup of redbush, went back to bed. Got up again, had a hot sea salt bath (sorry neighbours!). Bit of a laugh getting in and out...not!

Went back to bed. Couldn't sleep, so wrote this:


There's a bone in my leg

My arms have them to.

They hold me together

Like a hardened glue.

what would it be like

If I didn't have them?

Like a rubber ball

Would I come bouncing

Back to you.

Yeah I know...sorry! :-)

Sea salt bath was nice though. Just had a candle for light. Soothed the soul a bit.

Yes nothing worse than not being able to sleep at night, went through it for six months until I was controlled, love the poem xxx

Love the poem. As a poet I'm a good plumber.

Woken by pain in the feet, dog snoring like a walrus, visit to the loo, painkillers, earplugs, bed.

The high life. Not


Previous owners of my house put a spray of glowing paint that kind of looks like a galaxy, and most nights up til 4 am counting "stars"
