Sound asleep on my little island
Way back deep a one man clan
A word for all and all the guys
Far back even for all the Y’s
I wish you all the very best
Far away six letters abreast
I’m a Z alone don’t come on back
You and the rest of the alphabet
My island is big enough for one
That’s me alone with the only sun
An independent body, a solo man
No A to Y for a helping hand
Leave me alone so I can I can be free
Let me sleep so I can go Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-z– - -

Exactly what I need! With all the things that had happened in the past few days of my life! Escaping house fumigation, trips to Yosemite, attending a André Rieu Concert in San Diego, now here in Wisconsin for my brother’s ascending to meet our family and the people he love In heaven. Thanks for this Robert. Surely a lot of Zs is what I need. Like.
