There it is again…
At the window in the night,
A shadow through the curtain,
In the fading twilight…
Ear plugs removed, for just a brief moment,
…Then lo and behold,
I perceived this new torment;
This is no sleep paralysis demon,
No monster of the night,
No serial killer stalking the neighbourhood,
But a demented housemate locked out once more;
The ear plugs go back in!
The headphones go back on!
Noise-cancellation enabled, no hesitation!
Just block it out,
It’ll just stop.
Yes, you’re stopping me from going to bed right now,
Yes, I will lose sleep for this cause.
He’s still knocking…
Bring back Billy Backwater, please.
