A Haiku - Christopher McKenna

2:05 AM
Gotta work in the morning


A sleepless mind's fevered writings, the depths of anger and despair reached when unable to sleep, the frenzied mental self-cries to SHUT UP BRAIN, JUST SHUT UP ALREADY AND LET ME SLEEP only further exacerbating the sleeplessness problem - clearly, a modernist masterpiece.  An obscenity to God punctuated by more obscenity, this poet shows clear and blatant disregard for pious tradition, instead preferring to go into a Godless night where perhaps he can find some sleep.

Or it's just a funny haiku.
