no matter this dawg gone pup
     took numerous took
     one after another cat nap
his utterly fatigued

     body electric still ragged
     as if he went without sleep for a lifetime,
     ensnared within a time warp,
     espied that aggravating "aw SNAP"

(error code instead of a webpage
     indicating Chrome happens to be
     experiencing problems loading)  
     or, simultaneously
     caught in a narcoleptic parent trap

thus, while a burst of energy
     temporarily doth prevail
(a priori which extreme fatigue
     of body, mind and spirit -

     more troublesome worse than -
     getting crucified
     with a rusty nine inch nail
alleviated with deep sleep finds

     much more tiredness
     than usual quotidian sleepiness
     bruiting this male)
     being imprisoned (for high
     gram matt tick crimes
     and misdemeanors) such as: comma, splices,
     dangling a modifier, splitting an infinitive,
     unnecessary parenthesis (), et cetera

     which landed me punctually,
     proverbially, and squarely in jail
fed thin gruel with grubs that didst flail
nauseating pluperfect revulsion
     each time hide exhale

which, many hours long rests did restore
for a bit of time only for totally tubular
     exhaustion to come roar
ring back leaving me tour
     charred as if...i fought in every major war.
