Now Janna is so sleep-deprived
It's a miracle she can still drive
She should call it a night
But instead she will write
Yet one more Friday 55

"Too tired for breathing," she said
As quicksand oozed into her head
The room, growing dim
And rapidly grim
She longed for the warmth of her bed

go get some rest...
let the quicksand thicken over night.


my 55

Check you out with the poetry girl!
I love it , and I feel kinda special that you
Are suffering for the Friday Funfest
Loved your weary 55
Thanks for playing, you are like clean flannel sheets, on a cold Michigan night. Have a Kick Ass Week End

Goodness! Head to bed! Glad you played first. :-)

...flannel sheets on a cold Michigan night...

THAT is the ultimate compliment I think - AND I am impressed with your poetry!

Janna, even sleep-deprived you pull off an amazing 55! :)

Hope you had sweet dreams..maybe 55 of them ;)

Don't let that obnoxious anonymous person convince you to try word verification!

Any word verified is not alive. Okay, bad slant rhyme. Now to what is important.

Good piece and good use of rhyme--that is a gift.

Janna said...

Brian: I got 8 hours of sleep but it didn't help!

G-Man: Thank you for specifying that they were CLEAN flannel sheets. :)

Teresa: Thanks for visiting!

Margaret: And not just any flannel sheets; CLEAN flannel sheets!

Spam person who I deleted: Please go wipe with poison ivy.

TALON: Thank you!

Susan: Spam is annoying, isn't it? I'd hate to switch to word verification because I think people would be less inclined to comment. I get so few comments as it is.

i'm not one for quicksand. Quick oatmeal maybe.

Janna said...

nonamedufus: Have you tried the new "instant" quicksand? Just add milk and pop it in the microwave for a few minutes.
Although oatmeal does taste better.

I just woke up again, my monitor fully covered with XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX's and still counting.
Good night.

Janna said...

SteveE: LOL! Good night!
