People Sleep To Keep On It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People sleep to keep on it...
All their yesterdays they permit.
And...
People sleep to keep on it,
As if this beings a benefit.
And hold on,
To burdened woes.
And hold on,
Tight...
Afraid to let woes go!
Oh!

People sleep to keep on it,
And do it from coast to coast.
And...
People sleep to keep on it,
As if they have a love for ghosts.
And hold on,
To burdened woes.
People sleep to keep on it.
And hold on,
Tight...
Afraid to let woes go!
Oh!

People sleep to keep on it...
With wishes to pick hardships.
And...
People sleep to keep on it...
Up tight but can not quit.
And hold on,
To burdened woes...
People sleep to keep on it.
And hold on,
Tight...
Afraid to let woes go!
Oh!

People sleep to keep on it...
As if hardships benefit.
And...
People sleep to keep on it,
With...
A knowing that this makes them sick!
And hold on,
To burdened woes...
People sleep to keep on it.
And hold on,
Tight,
As if they have a love for ghosts...
Oh!

People sleep to keep on it.
And witness...
Themselves getting very sick.
Oh yes!
People sleep to keep on it.
Oh yeah,
As if this brings a benefit.
Say yeah!
People sleep to keep on it.
And witness...
Themselves getting very sick.
Oh yes!
People sleep to keep on it.
Oh yeah,
As if this brings a benefit.

And hold on...
With all their might!
People sleep to keep on it.
And hold on...
Without a fight.
People sleep to keep on it.
And hold on...
With all their might!
People sleep to keep on it.
And hold on...
Without a fight.
Oh!
Sleeping people seem to keep on it!
Say yeah!
A sleeping people seem to keep on it!
Say yeah!
Sleeping people seem to keep on it!
Say yeah!
A sleeping people seem to keep on it!
Say yeah!
