Stay up late

You may, at one time or another during your stay on this earthly plane, be called upon to travel to such unfortunate (and distant) destinations as the airport, and at such unfortunate (but proximate) hours as 5:00 AM. In such circumstances, you may rightly ask yourself, What the hell am I doing still up, 54 minutes after midnight? Don't I want to get some sleep?!?

But do not fear. Summon, rather, the timeless wisdom of decades-dead poets, and answer your question thusly:

Dude. Don't go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the timing of the flight!

And when at last the morning light
you find yourself strapped in all
nice and tight. Just close your eyes
and dreams you'll see while
airplanes take you where you plan
to be.
