Nightmares aside, the worst evils are devised
in full awareness, with spectacles on.
Watch them leaning over the war charts.
Strategizing next moves. No one is snoring.
A sleeping lion means a grazing antelope.
Even arguments require cognizance.
Every psychopath will tell you --
"This thing is going to involve actual movement."
Woman in a coma shoots three neighbours.
There's a headline I want to know more about!
Unconscious man bludgeons four at bus stop.
No. Sadly, all these things take place -- vertically.
Admitted, there are sweet dreams and bad ones.
But this morning, waking from the former type
I wondered -- What keeps me from its realization?
What, indeed, except [hit snooze] wakefulness.
