Sleep Is For The Weak

Sleep Is For The Weak

A Poem by Shaun

is for the weak,
who can't stand
a week
of nights guilt,
when pyramids
can be built,
in an honour,
and women placed
to his ever
critical face,
to confirm authority
from his throne.

It sounds and rhymes well. It's fast and full of energy. Well done!
I like short poems as they are really poems and also they demonstrate and test the poets abilities.
This poem also can be taken negatively (in a good way), speaking about the building of pyramids and the power of Pharaoh. The first part could be considered as propaganda for the second part about the power.
Then again it speaks how much you can make over the night and I agree. Wouldn't surprise me if I learned that pyramids were build during night.
Wow, this really can be taken in so many directions. Rather stop here before I overdo it too much :
