Insomnia at 89

So it is you Mr. half past three
And just what do you think you are doing to me.

Now Mr. half past five
Please take note that I am still alive

And now you Mr. Half past six
I suppose you think you’ve got me in a hell ava fix

But no, Mr. Half past Nine
Those three hours sleep were simply fine

So please take note Old Father Time
That at 89 I am still hitting that line

And I will till the end of the time of the time that is mine

And then, well good luck to you Old Father Time

I will then go to sleep and sleep all the way to the end of your line.

E. H. Richardson
