Sleep and DreamsSome days we're awake for hours on end.
Sometimes we don't sleep at all.
Some days we dream while wide awake,
Sometimes we rest, other times we fall.
Dreams AboundI’ve decided on a world,
You might know of it.
It’s where our stories come alive!
The problem, you see,
Is that what we know of those tales,
Think a thought and it appear before you,
But be weary for it will happen in twisted ways unkind.
The shame of it all, is that it follows you.
...stuck forever with this idea latched behind.
So we take these two things,
Put them together just right,
And populate the world with nightmares abound!
While dreams may be real,
Fear is much stronger,
Such a shame for all those around.
Why We Have Goat for Tuesday DinnerOnce upon a time, there was a young boy named Franchesco The Not-So-Great who always dreamed of becoming the world's best failure. He trained every day for 42 hours in order to beat his rival, The Haphazard Menace. The day of the big competition arrived, and Franchesco The Not-So-Great came armed with a goat and his unstoppable determination. They were pitted against each other in a battle of wits, and Franchesco The Not-So-Great emerged as the inside out victor! His achievement is celebrated every Wednesday-eve.
Apples and OrangesMy great-grandfather used to tell me, "Don't chase after apples because you'll only end up with a fish in your wisdom tooth." I never quite understood his advice until one April Fool's Day, I was gardening with my best friend Ashley. All of a sudden, we found an underground tunnel! It was orange and spooky sounds came from deep within. Ashley saw something interesting inside, jumped in, and I never saw her again. Great-granddaddy was right!
