Midnight State Of Mind - Poem by Linda Ori

Six a.m...... the alarm is beepin'
Hit the snooze and keep on sleepin'
Crazy dream...... want to go on keepin'
That midnight state of mind;

Another workday, and I'm not ready
To hit the grind and keep goin' steady
Colleagues kickin' over somethin' petty -
Want my midnight state of mind;

Tryin' to work but my mind's not in it,
Wantin' my way but I just can't win it,
Just can't tolerate one more minute -
Without my midnight state of mind;

Clock out time and I'm out the door
Gotta run over to the grocery store
Pick up some chips and a six-pack o' Coors -
Come on midnight state of mind!

Hit the den and log online
Check my e-mail while tryin' to dine
Back on PH and the world is fine -
I'm in my midnight state of mind.

    This is brilliant Linda. Move over Billy Joel. I hope you have a tune for this! ! This is a state that we can all relate to very easily on the PH show. Doncha just hate it when that alarm goes off and you've got to go! ! Very atmospheric rendering of that state of mind! ! Excellent. jim xx (Report) Reply
