Why can I not sleep?

Another poem about my continuing insomnia,

Why can I not sleep?

What crop do I reap?

Why is this my lot?

Why this forfeit got?

What was my offence?

Where is my defence?

I cannot upkeep,

This denial of sleep.

If you wonder why many of my poems are about insomnia, its because they are written at horrific times in the morning (e.g. this was written at about quater past two on a sunday morning). Hope you enjoy. Please feel free to comment.
