Certain Sleep

finaloldman

For over twenty years,

I lay unconscious in my bed

With the silliest of notions

Galavanting through my head.

 

I think of the accomplishments

I could have made instead–

I swear I’ll never sleep again

Until the day I’m dead!

 

Well, now my bones are aching,

And my eyes are turning red;

I think I’ll rest them just a bit,

And lie back on the spread.
