Slow Mind Unwind

Not happening on my back  
try switching to my right side  
nope the brain wants to think  
canít stop, or be denied  
obviously not running in logical mode  
else would abide physiology code  
a body at rest should remain at rest  
most doctors say 8 hours is best  
a penny for your thoughts  
are you kidding?  
hell, Iíll give them for free  
take them Iím begging  
for theyíre tormenting me  
Iíve tried every trick  
liable to lull me to slumber  
read from the bible  
old testament and new  
made me feel guilty  
my sins to remember  
tried ASMR, that Russian beauty  
whose whispers are so soothing  
wound up in lascivious land  
synapses now firing naughty  
chamomile tea was no help and  
I took my fourth trip to the potty  
finally, at 5 AM I turned to Lao Tzu  
audio rendering of Tao Te Ching  
it worked and marvelous dreams did ensue  
awoke in one hour when cruel alarm rang
