off-beat circadian rhythm


waking teenage boy

in morning proves real challenge

he’s wired to sleep sound

after three alarms buzz on

you will find him still snoozing


“What time did you go to bed?”  is my first question 🙂  Join Elsie’s weekly tanka challenge at Ramblings of a Writer.

    Love this, so true, teenage boys seem to need a lot of sleep, I know my three did.
    All the best.
