IF THE BLADDER'S TOO FREQUENT//IT'S SOMEHOW DELINQUENT.//THE BATHROOM I FREQUENT.

My bladder is my sleep-ender
and makes insomnia my betrayer
because I have to be a bathroom player
with my periodical urine
at too early in the morning
as a suitable warning
that I'll be sleepy all day
and droop when I should work or play.
The bladder is my sleep spoiler,
my peaceful-rest soiler,
my peace-of-mind destroyer.
Yet I'm grateful that my bladder
keeps me going up the ladder
of organic consistency
without the onus of disability,
and opens up the world of pissibility.
Better to say "urine" than "you're out,"
as long as your system is holding up stout.
A later nap restores you, no doubt.
