|“Listen up, the sounds of sleep apnea
clearly display onomatopoeia!”
“Please include words like snore as of this date
so they will not need to interpolate.”

“As catatonic as this patient seems,

"Such cogent data will or course abound,
but they, for sure, find interest in the sound.”
The doctor on duty, churlish in mood,
found sleep in the day and worked through the night;
‘neath the caduceus, patently rude
lurked a clipboard carrying lychnobite.

due to a structural defect inside.”
“And quite strong, despite his pyknic physique,

Those sounds conveyed to the readers of Keats,
with assonance found in iambic beats,
the lightning to flash, a loud thunderclap--
they made from the words this, “Ode to a Nap.”
