PhrasePhrase Continued
When You're Lying Awake
And Repose is Tabooed by Anxiety
To Indulge in, Without Impropriety
The Bed Clothes Conspire
First Your Counterpane Goes
And Your Sheet Slips Demurely From Under You
You Feel Like Mixed Pickles
PhrasePhrase Continued
And Your Hot and Your Cross
Till There's Nothing 'Twixt You and the Ticking
And You Pick Them All Up in a Tangle
And Politely Declines to Remain at Its Usual Angle
With Hot Eyeballs and Head Ever Aching
That You Very Much Better Be
