Can't Sleep At Your Keep?

Can you sleep like a cat and nap wherever you are at? Is that a no? Geez, maybe you need to eat a crow? Yeah, that would not work. But you are screwed up by a certain perk.

Can't sleep,
Not light or deep.
Poor you,
At your zoo.

Blame me.
Blame each sea.
Blame your reading.
Am I misleading?

Nope, it's your screen.
It is just mean.
It won't let you sleep.
The screen is a creep.

Those energy saving light bulbs too.
Maybe the TV you view.
Even a table lamp,
One with a stupid light bulb cramp.

Why is that?
Follow the cat.
It is because of blue light.
It shines through the night.

It makes your body think it is day.
So you get energy at your bay.
Energy and sleep don't mix.
Yep, can even get it from watching flicks.

Blue light can also increase stuff.
Like cancer, diabetes and make depression rough.
All because you use your computer at night.
Phones, tablets, etc. also have it take flight.

So you are screwed.
Unless you find the computer rude.
Then you are fine.
Sleep will align.

Blue light is a pain.
Can screw with any sleep train.
The cat just wanted you to know.
And yep, 100% scientific fact on the go.

f.lux is an app,
That can cut the trap.
I just started giving it a go,
Can't hurt at my show.

Ever hear of blue light and it screwing with you at night? Just another thing "advancements" have done. Aren't our bodies fun? Can get glasses that block it too. So I'm told at my zoo. So if you can't sleep and don't know why, you may have just been told why by this rhyming guy. At least blue light won't give you gas, I have enough of that in my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

    Up every hour or so

    Into that blue light

  14. I cannot sleep at the drop of a hat,
    Very unlike your cat!
    Sleep for me is hard to find,
    Which is a daily kick in the behind.
    My husband is always early in bed,
    And I'm up with a screen in my face just like you said.

    1. That screen can screw with the sleep

  18. I hope your app helps.

    I used to wonder how people could fall asleep sitting up. Now that I do that, I always fold my laptop and put it on the floor when I get drowsy watching tv. I don't want to wake up when it breaks on the floor. lol, that gets expensive.

  19. Very interesting! I never heard this theory.
    If it is helpful to some, that is a good thing.
    I usually awaken at 4 a.m. and have to fight to sleep again
    don't need to depend on an alarm to ring!

  25. The mister has this problem, too,
    with the light that is called blue.
    But it doesn't bother me at all...
    always sleep well at my hall.
    Grind my teeth while I sleep, though,
    but that's another topic to throw.
