The world keeps turning and it's all we can do to keep holding on, in Stéph Kuypers' plaintive poem.

Ah world, you look so tired
and so am I
tossing and turning
in my bed at 5am
in the morning
when I am counting the sheep
and hoping desperately that there are less
than I think.
Ah world, I don’t know how you turn and turn
and don’t throw up
for I surely would
when faced with the State today.
Ah world, let me sleep
and I can dream a kinder you
