Sandman Spent

sitting on his beach at night
just Sandman and the moon
the waves roll in and out
it’ll be a new day soon

another night of him right here
not sprinkling sand in children’s eyes
he grew so tired, can’t get up
it matters not how hard he tries

water crashes, castles crumble
sand gets flushed to sea
oh, how badly Sandman wants
no more work, and just be free
