On Reading Yet Another Article on the Dangers of Sleep Deprivation

Experts say that lack of Z’s
Turns your brain to cottage cheese,
Causes cramps and constipation,
Rickets, gout, hallucination,
Hypertension, bloody piss,
The heartbreak of psoriasis,
Carpal tunnel, loss of sight…
And that’s what keeps me up at night!

    As someone who stays up quite late,
    I’d like to enter this debate.
    Fatigue has not ruined my brain!
    And my friend Hitler says the same.

    Don’t you dear.

    Preach it! Those ubiquitous (and slightly scolding) articles are really getting under my skin. Yes, I’d be better off not having a baby wake me up three times a night. Thank you so much, “masters of the bleeding obvious”!

    I lie in bed, wide awake
    my brain won’t stop, won’t take a break.
    At last! Finally! My eyelids close.
    …then BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ the alarm goes.
