The Value of a Bad Night’s Sleep

Suffer in your repetitive head: that's prescriptive for
awake from three to six
where you live is a farce
made up by mind
and that will be clear
overnight when you find
all that you thought
back in your head
from eyes down to ears
sinking with lead
ever the loss
of pain and no sleep
terrible costs
bearing the deep
and yet it's the day
when nightmare begone
awake and at play
remember that wrong
perspective might win
the story today
that failure to slumber 
a usefulness fray.
