Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams

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.

Clear, complex, and representative of your inimitable style. Always the polarities, the ridding questions.
