Deprived

Deprived



Sleep is not an option when
The moon is full and round
It makes humans and most animals
Behave weirdly, I have found

Especially the elderly
When deprived of beauty sleep
They fidget and they’re grumpy
Hold their finger on the ‘bleep’

I’m glad I’m not on night shift
It would drive me round the bend
Buzzers buzzing all night long
Your welcome to it, friend.

Animals will also do
Things that are out of wack
Like peeing on your duvet
Just because you turned your back

Well I’m afraid we have a problem
Each and every full moon rising
It makes one feel so lousy
When you have your sleep depriving

There is lots of truth to this! Mercy, I used to work night shift in a lock down wing . . . by myself. Never knew what to expect. One full moon night I heard sounds coming from a certain room. The patient was violent. His door was cracked just enough I could see he wasn't in bed. I moved the door open with much caution, stepped in and got that creep thing going up the back of my neck. TURN AROUND, screamed my inner tuition. He was behind the door with BOTH canes in the air ready to knock me cold! I jumped back in time, slammed the door to and called for an orderly STAT!

More babes are born, women's menstrual cycles are effected, dogs get jumpy, ocean tides get more wild . . . and the insane - they get even:-)

Good writing, good subject!

Very good poem Jinettyx, I am mostly on night shifts so all those bells, buzzers and other noises of the night always reach my ears.
My best time of day is when I am on me way home and all the faces of the commuters going to work. Me thinking I am off to beddy byes...lol group hug Like a Star @ heaven Like
