Did you sleep child through it all?
The Winter snow, the Spring rainfall?
While the world was teeming, calling your name
You just kept on dozing all the same
Aye Sir I did. I slumbered fast
And hoped the peace it brought would last
For only in the closing eyes
Was I able to drown out horrible cries
Aye I did Sir, I slumbered tight
Through lavish days and lulling nights
I felt the moon crown in my thighs
Felt the sun heat turquoise skies
And still I lay and still I slept
While children laughed and old ladies wept
I will always sleep
I will always laze
Not for me this ‘living craze’
For I was made for softer falls
For wider skies and gilded halls
I was made for whirring stars
For glimmering blackness
For noiseless cars.
And would you sleep boy,through your whole life?
Though not all just hardship, not all strife?
Aye Sir yes,I would indeed
Not for me this greedy breed
The world is made of many kinds
Those who live it, they don’t mind
But I am certainly not one of those
So please do leave me to repose
I really can’t carry this heavy lumber
So Sir good night. I’m off to slumber.
