Toggle Switch

 

I’m looking for a toggle switch,

one that flicks from off to on,

so when I find me zoning out

it won’t be frowned upon.

 

It does not have to be too big,

not important is the size,

the only thing that matters

is a ‘shut down’ to devise.

 

Think of all the things you have

from car to mobile phone,

they all do need recharging

when they hit that run-down zone.

 

Sleep, that really doesn’t count,

disrupted, incomplete,

the only thin it does provide --

a rest for weary feet.

 

No, I’m needing me a switch of sorts,

that ‘off’ to me will turn,

for exhaustion has afflicted

like a parasitic worm.
