I Fell Asleep Five Times Today

Student

I fell asleep five times today
the first time at my desk
a Google doc was onscreen still
I’m sure you know the rest.

I fell asleep five times today
this time on my bed
though I forgot to draw my covers up
there was plenty on my chest.

The third time I fell asleep
I made sure to floss a little
but then I lost my memory
and slept a bit at best.

The sun was lit when I woke up
but I hadn’t gone to bed!
So I brushed my teeth some more
studying for today’s tomorrow’s test.

I do not recall the final time
I finally fell asleep
All I know is that I hoped
nobody else would die
Just rest.

“I’m so tired” the crickets’ children said
We tried real hard to reach our bed
Then all of us we prayed
I fell asleep five times today.
