NaPoWriMo #11: ‘The Road to Bed’

I wrote three poems today. This is the one that’s being posted tonight; the others will be shared at a later time. Prepare for a very misleading poem.

The Road to Bed
By Maggie McGinity

Tucked into the right place
Can we, please, for a while
Go to sleep with a smile
Before it falls off our face?

I know. You haven’t done enough.
The road was rough,
And though the day was warm and bright,
We must relax in the cold, dark night.

Tucked into the right place
Will we, please, for a while
Go to sleep with a smile
Still plastered to our face?

It’s difficult, avoid the cult.
Now, staying in is the revolt,
And though all is quiet here,
My dreams are a riot, dear.

Tucked into the right place
May we, please, for a while
Go to sleep with a smile
And let it stay on our face?”

Quote:

“People say, ‘I’m going to sleep now,’ as if it were nothing. But it’s really a bizarre activity. ‘For the next several hours, while the sun is gone, I’m going to become unconscious, temporarily losing command over everything I know and understand. When the sun returns, I will resume my life.'” – George Carlin
