After the day's long toil,
the relief of being able to lie down
relax and close your eyes
explore the universe in one sitting
drift into another world
pretend and believe just like when you were a child
it is all appreciated by every humble worker

The problem is when they are
brought back into this unpleasant truth,
the truth that reality exists
ultrarelevant, streaming in through your window,
jolting every bone to action
to begin the game again

Doing this every day becomes unbearable,
and the undereyes become a map of misery
