In order to cruise
I cannot snooze
otherwise I’ll lose.
For my own sake
I have to stay awake
there is a lot at stake.
I cannot be lazy
this would be crazy
even if things look hazy.
I need to keep
away from sleep
when praying for sheep.
During the day no zzz’s
that would not please
for everything would freeze.
I can’t afford to be tired
nor can I be wired
for I’ve been hired.
