Lullaby

young-girl-dreaming-study-of-a-child-asleep-1881

You hung a man with a broken noose

when you’ve got a golden guillotine

The Pied Piper of Hamelin

Is stealing your every scene

The hardest part of keeping

your eyes closed

Is not knowing who delivered

that thorny thorny rose.

Sleep, sleep, sleep

through your dreams

You never went to the cemetery

unless you were dead.

But every Saturday to the aquarium

right out of bed.

All the fish could agree

you were their favorite girl.

The shark, the oyster,

the coral and the pearl.

Sleep, sleep, sleep

through your dreams.
