A SARTRE KINDA MORNING
I woke this morning and the first thing I felt was
A wave of nausea overwhelming me, leaving me
Weak, running to my toilet. I let it all go, a long
Simple puke that left me feeling not a whole
Lot better. After washing down I had some food,
A mug of tea and a wee little smoke. The day
Carried on almost normally and I soon forgot
About my morning incident, I suppose I'm kinda
Used to it, that early morning puke but generally it's
Caused by a heroic consumption of booze the
Night before. This time it’s simple to see the cause
Of this nausea, the thought of work that I'll have to
Return to tomorrow after a week off de-stressing
Off sick. Oh well, wait until tomorrow when I puke
Up over the feet of my first new customer.
