No Quits Allowed

Like It Or Not

Even the sleep-impaired, sleep-deprived,
incoherent insomniac must comply:
there will be no exceptions made,
no exemptions granted.
Even though the earliest light
only magnifies the nothingness,
it is precisely that effect
which is to be recorded.
It is strictly forbidden
to reject the task, forbidden
to surrender to recalcitrance.

So: Now what, another Nagasaki?
Or will it just be the usual:
blueberry pancakes
and a pageful of denial?
