A Three Day Long Day



I was awake at sunrise
I was awake all through the day
I was awake all night
And when the sun returned; no surprise,
It seems that awake I will stay.
I’m beginning to fear the light.

I did not eat on the first day
I would not eat on day two
And I could not eat on the third
My appeitite did not go away
Just the ability to chew
So soft foods are preferred.

Day four begins in one hour
But I hope to be asleep
A sleep way before sunrise,
A good rest to rebuild power
And so my sanity I can keep.

I believe I should close my eyes.
Close my eyes and call the sandman
So I can ask him for a dream
And for him to bring it quick,
“I’ll hurry as fast as I can”
Said Mr. Sand as he gathered up his team
I hope he’s faster than a cheap trick.

I did battle with malnutrition
And I fought back dehydration
Now I must declare war on sleeplessness.
I won the battle in the kitchen
And I won the fight at water nation
But the war it still rages so I can only guess.

The war seems to be going my way
But how much longer will it last?
My soldiers say within a few hours.
I can finally end my day
I hope I go out fast.

The time approaches for some dream showers
I hope to sleep for several hours
And dream only of my girl
Until she wakes me between eight and nine
I need sleep to rebuild my powers
So I can make her toes curl
Until then I should be fine.
