The Gremmie’s Lament

Trouble Waking Up
“Seriously? Can’t I sleep in?” (Photo credit: zoomar)

I woke up this morning

I’ve never been surfing,
don’t know if I will.
Every time I get closer, here
comes another bill.

You gotta believe
It’s gonna be alright

Because that’s where it starts
And it ends eventually, so…
