Lie-In

He lies-in
Until no more
Can he waste his day in bed
He must get up and use his head
Even if just for a while
Before he succumbs to procrastination's beguile
He'll type, he'll write
He'll delete and undo
He'll lie down some more
To see him through
Until the next
Lie-In

Clearly, the author enjoys sleep: the lexis 'lie-in' being a greatly significant aspect of the verse. However,  what is made less clear is whether the bed is an antecedent to his work, or the inhibiting factor of his creativity; which leads us to question - is the bed the creator or destroyer of creativity?

  1. Clearly, the author is a complete and utter wanker.
