Sketches – 43

Sometimes, needs must

I’m kind of tired tonight.
I think I’m just going to try
And go straight to sleep

. . .

Or not

. . .
That’s up to you.
However. . .


Can be harder to live with
Than fatigue

Is that a trade off
You’ve had to make often?

Um, yeah.
But everyone does, I think.
It’s universal.

I don’t want to miss
Anything I’d regret

I promise you’ll sleep better
More importantly,
So will I

So this
Is about you?

It’s about us.
That includes you and me

So I’m taking one. . .

. . . for the team, yes.
