Eating Bananas At 3 AM

There must be people awake
Talking to their girlfriends
Earplugs stuck in brains
As they lie in their beds
At 3 AM

There must be people awake
Sitting in a call center
Talking to someone in America or maybe UK
With a fake accent
At 3 AM

There must be people traveling
In the buses and trains and cars and on foot
In the darkness from A to B
Waiting for a loo clean enough to pee
At 3 AM

There must be people doing Dirty Things
Somewhere, where, I don't know
Don't even want to
But I know they are doing Dirty Things
At 3 AM

But what I really want to know is,
Why am I
Writing a poem and
Eating bananas
At 3 AM

  7. LMAO I LOVE THIS! really do, I often don't stay up till three in the morning for some scary superstitious belief but maybe after reading this, I'll stay up till 3 AM and instead of pulling a scared face I'd smile thinking of a random guy writing a poetry while eating banana at 3 AM.
