“SLEEPLESS IN WORCESTER”

“SLEEPLESS IN WORCESTER”

(No relation to that movie about Seattle)

I’m sleepless in old Worcester,

I’ll take a triple expresso on a coaster…

Working straight out

I have no doubt,

By Saturday night I’ll need a booster!

Fourteen days straight, helping to cover

For my working buddy, grieving his Mother…

Can someone find quick

Sympathy cards in Arabic,

I wouldn’t do that for any other.

Want to attend  church but may just sleep

Considering the hours I’ll keep…

His weekend days are double shifts,

Only one of which is my gift,

The other day, our boss will keep.
