Y is for Yolanda can't stop Yawning #AtoZChallenge

This poem was inspired by my own delightful experiences with menopause and nightly hot flashes and sleeplessness. So much fun! YAWN!

Yolanda can’t stop yawning, no matter what she tries
Sometimes she’s so tired, she breaks down and cries,
She yawns reading a book and yawns when she talks,
She yawns on the computer, she yawns on her walks,

Yesterday she was yawning and today she is, too
What’s a poor exhausted gal need to do?
Her coffee habit has become an addiction
But it still doesn’t cure her yawning affliction,

Yolanda is fed up with yawning but can’t seem to quit
Some days she’s so tired, she feels like s***
She screws up and forgets things, it can really get bad
Annoying and embarrassing, it makes her so mad,

She also gets nightmares that give her a fright
She’s forgotten what it’s like to sleep at night,
The day she feels rested, she’ll break out in song
Until then, she’ll keep yawning all the day long.
