Yoda
Sleepy: Master, am I rigid?

Conscious, without exception, you never were!
Perspicacious, you have not been!
Lethargic, you are!
Hypnotic, you will constantly be!

Xenia Epigram
To sleepy I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like opiate
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using inanimate

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a verse, committed so people might see
Fully inviting overviews, merrily informing, and oh yet conveyed free?
Drowsy or supine seem all too manifest. But is caseful?
Somnolent, slack? - or indolent, sluggish? Darn! I excluded easeful!
I reckon lethargic and sometimes apathetic, but plainly ought I
- throw meanings so - abstracts written with computers spry?
