Sleeping In the Deepest Dawn

Sleeping In the Deepest Dawn

I had my own share of the toil

Placing my bare hands in the soil

I had accomplished much for the day

Don’t care what critics had to say

With enthusiasm I welcomed the night

Grabbing my pillow, I slept like a knight

There would be no blinking

‘cos my eyelids would be hugging

Hard work had proved itself productive

So there would be no need for a sedative

I hope there be no disturbance

‘cos I intend sleeping even after dawn

I slept! Yes I did sleep for days

Missed lots of opportunities that came my way

Who shall awaken I and this country from this

‘cos we have indeed slept in our deepest dawn.
