 'as you will discover as you read this book, when [...]'
{from Healthy Sleep Habits, Healthy Child by Marc Weissbluth}

page eight

as you will discover
as you read this book,
when
the universe implodes
you will be the only
one left
standing.

as you will discover
as you read this book,
when
push comes to shove
we are all
here
right
now.

as you will discover
as you read this book,
when
the clock strikes
twelve
no one
really
turns into a pumpkin.

as you will discover
as you read this book,
when
everything
falls apart
go buy
some glue.
