People Snoozing Miss Info - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Listening to do and attentively,
Is a getting of info one could know.
To do and gift understanding with it.

Ears turned away and shut closed,
May create a nod to start a deep doze.
And one sleeping hard,
Becomes detached from consciousness.
To awaken to wonder what time it is.

People snoozing miss info.
They should know but don't get.
People snoozing miss info.
To miss the benefit of vision and listening.
People snoozing miss info.

Ears turned away and shut closed,
May create a nod to start a deep doze.
And one sleeping hard,
Becomes detached from consciousness.
To awaken to wonder what time it is.

People snoozing miss info.
They could get.
But don't.

People snoozing miss info.
They could know but their ears are closed.

People snoozing miss info.
They could get.
But don't and wont.

People snoozing miss info.
And many sleeping will never grow.

Listening to do and attentively,
Is a getting of info one could know.
To do and gift understanding with it.
But,
People snoozing miss info.
They could get.
But don't.
