I woke up this evening and the sun was gone.
I need eugeroics to start my day,
On a minimal dose I can drift along,
I go off my meds and I slip away...

I'm modafinilling,
I don't sleep through my Sundays (modafinilling!)
I don't begin dreaming (modafinilling!)
'Till I sleep at the end of the day.
I sleep all night at the end of the day...

(No, I'm not actually on modafinil. But I was reading about it, and the "modafinilling" riff refused to leave me alone until I wrote it down, so here it is.)

Shouldn't the verb form be modafinilizing?

And would taking the drug be considered teh Modafinil solution?

Arguably, but modafinilizing wouldn't scan, or be as funny.

The solution was pretty amusing, though.

Excellent use of "eugeroics" in poetry.

Rather love it.
