Sleep for Zero Superhero

Steve the Stoic was a superhero
Because he needed to sleep zero.
Others turned off the evening light,
But he could do just what he liked.
Sometimes he worked, sometimes he thought,
Sometimes wild adventures he sought.
Steve could sleep if rest he desired,
Or if he just wanted to feel tired.
He loved to nap once a year at least
After his family Thanksgiving feast.
You’re likely thinking this can’t be true,
If eight hours of sleep is good for you,
But that’s exactly why he was called Stoic –
To conquer sleep one must be heroic.
