Inevitably Necessary

Sometimes it’s just sleep we need

Not another cup of caffeine

Or a brisk outdoor walk

Not even delightful, witty talk

Our bodies and minds

Need to recline

And get those cells to work

Rebuilding, repairing and restoring

You may hear a little snoring

That’s ok but here’s the truth

There is no substitute

We can try to prolong it

We can try to discount

The body will long

For the proper amount

Not bulls of crimson

No sugar filled or free beasts

What the body and brain need

Is just to get some sleep
