3 am, and working…


Sleepy eyes, tired mind,
All I want is my bed.
It’s already 3 am,
And I really need my nap.

But deadlines to be met,
Projects to be wrapped,
I can’t sleep just yet,
I’m overloaded, swamped!

But oh wait, don’t pity me,
For having to stay awake.
I procrastinated all day,
So, I guess this is okay.

I binged on Young Sheldon,
Munching cinnamon buns,
Thinking about the pending tasks,
As I just lazily relax.

Now I’m burning the midnight oil,
Cribbing about how I have to toil,
Damn! I’m such a lazy person.
Bye! I gotta get work done!
