I hope all my fellow Americans had a great Thanksgiving this past Thursday and that everyone is gearing up for the Holidays. I sure know I am. For right now, however, here’s this week’s “Poem of the Week,” which is relatively short and sweet compared to most of the other works I’ve posted every Sunday on this blog, and in case anyone is wondering, no—this poem did not come to me out of inspiration from any Tryptophan-induced nap I may have experienced over Thanksgiving break. I hope you’ll enjoy it all the same, though!

Yawn…so tired I am.
So much do I want to lay down my head.
I probably should hoist my butt out of my chair,
Therefore, and trudge my way off to bed.
Fatigue’s getting to me, anyway,
Making my eyelids as heavy as lead,
And sucking the concentration out of me—
So much, in fact, that I damn near feel dead,
Even with the computer screen shining in my eyes
With a blank word document page in my face,
And the more I focus on it, the less attention
I pay to it, making me feel like a disgrace
For not being able to do what I do best,
So what’s the point of me even bothering to go on?
I should just hit the hay and shut my eyes
Before I dare to issue yet one more…
Well, that should do it for this week. In the meantime, thanks once again for stopping by this humble little blog of mine, and as always, be sure to visit my author page at Smashwords.com for current and future releases (not too much longer until I finally release UWWX: The Underground Women’s Wrestling Xperiment, by the way), and follow me on Twitter @DustinMWeber. Until next time, then, Happy Holidays to you all, and happy reading!
