I Fell Asleep Beneath The Flowers or: This Chair is So Comfortable

It’s so hard not to fall asleep in class.

Even with an ample five hours of sleep,

I find myself turning over this handout

And blogging to keep myself awake.

In high school I never fell asleep.

I was much more physically exhausted,

Here, the chairs in lecture halls are just too comfy,

And the ability to skip work and go to sleep is just so easy.

And as I dig deep,

Trying not to stab myself with my pen,

I realize I’m just gonna have to learn it all over again.

Because Spivey’s words are in one and out the next,

And to fully understand, I must consult the text.

And even though at times he is a really funny guy,

I feel as if this class is good to get a little bit of shut-eye…

Van – I hear ya! Sometimes, it’s really hard not to gently close your eyes during class. Especially in the late afternoon and the professor turns down the lights. We’re all guilty : )
