Sleeping in a Lecture

Sleeping in a Lecture

By May Kwek

No matter how hard I seem to try
The lecturer's voice is like a lullaby
Gently lulling me to sleep
Into dreamland dark and deep

It is awfully hard to resist
The lecture hall's sleepy mist
I really fight! I really try!
But the next moment I'm in the sky

And so in dreams I continue to be
Where a moments feels like an eternity
Until a voice awakens me
From my dreams on the sea

"Will someone wake up that girl up there?"
And everyone turns around to stare
"I am sorry is all I can say
Before trying to stay awake the rest of the day
