sleep apt me

hello, boys and girls

this is your peter pan read along storybook and i am your peter pan storyteller. today's story is called "shoe shine"
when you hear this sound *bing* turn the page
and now, on with our story.

in a village, by a river, lived a lady, name of chou
she didn't have too many children, in fact just two

she had a job, and some bills, and some very good friends
but what she lacked in means, she made up for in ends.

when her kids weren't around, she'd put in some work.
and when work dried up, she'd search out some perk

maybe up to all hours or down at the creek,
her life seemed quite full, but there was a leak

after four or so years at this sickening pace
she freaked out and laid down, gave up the race

the fact that she could quit gave her such a scare,
she sought out her doctor and made her aware

"you're really not functioning with all bells and beeps,
tell me something, shoe baby, how much do you sleep?"

sleep, let me think, sleep, i knew that word
but sleep was the very most rare kind of bird

the doctor scribbled a script with the greatest of care
"take one every evening and sleep like a bear"

so smart she took that advice and continues to,
and the shoe, she shines like well rested chou do

the end
sleepy tight, sweet blown-eyes!

Loopy "er", RSM.

Sleep well, Chou.

Sleep doesn't happen for me without assistance, unfortunately. I haven't been able, however, to construct such a lovely poem regarding it. You're going to give Elisson a run for his money if you keep that up. Hope the pills work - mine have lost some of their potency for me lately...ick!

Sleep well Chou, but whilst sleeping don't let the bed bugs bite!
