Sleep It Off
Source: Shiner
136 words, confirmed


Shake him for a day, see what falls away,
Take what's left and kick the scraps away.
He drinks his gasoline, it sends him to his dreams,
His sticky life has been too sweet.
She laughs him lullabies, to help him close his eyes,
He never thinks he'll ever sleep.
He twists inside his sheets, curled up at her feet.
A quiet mess that's warm and sweet.
Shake him for a year, in spite of all his fears,
I never thought he'd be so strange.
He lines them in a row, these things he's always known,
Takes his time and flicks them all away.
Shake him for a day, shake him until he breaks,
Take what's left and kick the scraps away.
He drinks his gasoline, and finally gets to sleep.
His silly life is incomplete.
