tiredness

Short Summary

2 minutes to Say

A day, yes, let’s,

Quick, before it’s

Stopped and the

Flesh collapses

Into sleep.

 

Say a day somewhere

Far off, not today,

That’s been and

Gone, not worth

Its weight in gold,

So little lost.

 

Say tomorrow, that

Will be, the healthy

World will wake

Once more, tireless,

Unlike me.

 

The wheels will spark

And something roll –

A Clown perhaps,

With a pair of sticks,

A ball and a gun.
