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

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.
