the oft-felt experience of sleeping in class

Discernment to disillusionment fades

The lines blurred between what is not and true

Reality sojourns in separate shades

_

Speech makes guise of verisimilitude

Or is it the dream that tangibility feigns

Do my drowsy thoughts prance nude

_

In somnolent excursion the hour through

I disappear a while from instruction's face

Rigid desks spur no vigilance new

_

It's a battle from which I need to wake

A war within four modest walls

I fight for what I know is at stake

_

Then there's a dense humming in each ear

Sleeping in class is a loud noise

That I wish no one else to hear
