Or Is That “Spell”?

I could be asleep right now
There’s really no good way to tell
Unconsciously I still know how
To do most everything but smell
My punctuation jones may wane
Whilst Dreamland is my home address
But even an unslumbered brain
May choose to use a comma less
Or keep a semicolon holstered
Just for style’s sake or grins
The argument is hardly bolstered
By a poet’s licensed sins
That somnolescent verses only
Show themselves through sloppy writing
If you care you’re likely lonely
Or like watching word nerds fighting
Either’s fine but let’s not keep
Each other up if we’re asleep
