Before I Go to Sleep

“Awaken!” says my brain

But my body refuses

For sweet temptation is sleep 

It is sin not to have enough





My work is like bad chicken

Dry and overdone

And so before I commit another slothful act

I ask forgiveness from my fellow man

May your rest be Hippocratic

Deeply Nourishing in the Lull

Go-getters and teachers , I apologize

I tried my best, but……

My eyes are closed,

My head is bowed.

For silence is mercy

Among this crowd
