Soldiers in the Eyes
Less than ten hours is this exam, wasting precious time as a day talker
the body must stay awake, the mind should be a night walker
from the whole, such poor readiness needs to be recompensed
sleep afflicts this willing body with great suspense
so expensive is what defines this stepping stone
the required attempt is heavy on a weak bone
wishes flood for this night to be a wedding eve
better still, a cancellation to give the ultimate relief
willing but weak, determination is castrated
to damn what comes tomorrow and avoid the night being frustrated.
