Sleep to be Woke?
Guys, it's a metaphor. We don't expect you to be Woke like allllll the time. You can take the tape off your eyelids, rest your head against the pillow and take one of those long extended blinks called, you guessed it, sleep.
It's not a dirty word for the Wokes. Because, in essence, sleep is well, essential for one to be Woke. Oh, the irony. In fact, sleep is natural! We're just sayin', for those hours you are awake, BE awake! BE aware! BE enmotherfuckinlightened!
Alright, you still with me?
Sleep to Stay Woke
So, at the Woke house, sleep is a must. We run embroidery machines, produce Woke.TV, sew, design, make music, run a store, screen print every product you own, you name it! If you're new to the program, we make our own shit. For all this to go as planned, we HAVE to sleep. Best believe we're up late and rise early, but you don't want Ito so much in a haze that he's got WOKE sewn into his forehead 'cause he fell asleep on the embroidery machine do you!? Well, that could be cool though. Woke Embroidery Tats coming SOON!
Okay, so, while you doze off and your body gets much needed rest, your mind is still going a million miles a minute. It's almost like,
IN A NUTSHELL
Say you work retail. And if you work retail? I give it up to you cause that shit is NOT easy. But there you are, working at Target. You just spent the last 3 hours cleaning up the toothpaste aisle. Everything looks fantastico. But THEN. Yes, then comes a woman chatting on the phone, driving that cart like she just had 16 shots of tequila on her 21st birthday, and her friends said "no, don't take the keys!" but she took 'em anyway and she's headed right to your aisle. Your precious toothpaste aisle.
Her toddler is all snotty nosed in her cart wailing his arms around like gottdamn chopper in Black Hawk Down. Her 7 year old is clearly a blind psychopath because a sane person with eyesight uses said eyesight to navigate said aisle!
And there you are, watching it all unfold. Your eyes are riddled with fear. And well, there's nothing you can do. The 7 year-old makes the first impact. It's right into the 3D White Crest. Eight boxes crash to the floor in dramatic slow motion fashion. The woman reaches to pick them up. As she goes for the boxes, her toddler, that snotty nose little... well, he grabs six toothbrushes and throws them like gottdamn grenades. And that toddler has a gottdamn arm cause four bottles of mouthwash crash like bowling pins, exploding on that oh so beautiful tile that you just mopped.

Like I said, sleep, very important to be WOKE. But while you're Woke, FUCK SLEEP! You get it right?
