A Man Of Letters Who Needs An Escape - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Turn off the lights and crawl into bed.
But the night is still young.
Sleep skips away and he too needs an escape.
But he's chained to the pillar of success
And cannot avoid letting things pile up to his fatty nose.

    Your metaphors continue to amaze, Nimal. In particular 'sleep skips away' and his 'fatty nose'. In four brilliant lines you give the reader more creative expression than many poets would take several pages to produce. This poem is a fine example of 'less is more'.
