I just wrote this one, hope you like it.

A most contagious affliction
Not from the works of fiction

Tired, you may not be
Though it will take a hold of thee

Overpowers, but leaves no trace
Can spread across great space

Stops speech and ends song
But never lasts too long

I think grey cells has got it. "contagious", "tired, you may not be". Sounds good.

yeah, it was a yawn. Was this too easy? If so, which line gives it away too much?
