my mood
is inversely proportional
to the amount
of time
I’ve spent awake
when I should
have been asleep
I’m tempted to draw a graph
though it’s unnecessary
no maths or science
are really required
just listen
to my voice
turned snappy and short
I am grumpiness
so I try
to be nice
and actually
by trying to be nice
I actually get nicer
and in the end
I shake off the grumps
and the line
on my graph
goes all wonky
and proves me wrong
