When I go, to sleep at night

I fall, into this dark abyss

Only to wake up in morn

And have this, urge to piss


But with my body, indisposed

With its, early morning stasis

All attempts at getting up

Take so much longer, on this basis


And as those fluids start to move

Pulsate and finally flow

It’s like a glazier slowly melting

Disposing, of its ice and snow


My brain engages slowly

Like an inverse lava flow

It plods its way, up my nape

Then ignites my brain, let’s go


And as I sit there, peeing

For I no longer stand

I find it hard, to get back up

So my wife gives me a hand


Then I limp to go downstairs

But find the stairs too steep

So turn around, head back to bed

And go right back, to sleep


Then as I lay there

And I doze

I feel quite torpid

In my repose


Until my wife

Does come along

And gives to me

Her dance and song


“Get off your ass”

“You lazy bum”

“I have some things”

“That I need done”


So once more, I rouse myself

And strain, each weary bone

Crawl back, out of bed again

To face, that great unknown

This mad me chuckle. Pee is why I get up in the morning. Fun to read.
