Sleep is when

You’re awake, but unaware

Or comatose, and oblivious

Or dead, not a care

Sleep takes 

The pains

Out of all things

Who’d want to be up

Not me

Let us sleep

No flowers

          1. I’ll put you on my Christmas Card list, it will either piss you off or give you a bit of a buzz…
