Pity The Dreamer

     To most of us “slumberland” is a place of peace and rest. But, there are those who never seem to awaken from the dreams and the nightmares. This is for those poor souls… May God help them!

Pity The Dreamer

 Goblins and gremlins,

and ogres and elves,

inhabit the space,

that we call ourselves.


With genies, and meanies,

and leprechauns.

They all hide in that place,

with the unicorns.


Where the prince, and princess,

and the kings, and the queens,

come to court, nightly,

to visit, our dreams.


But, that land will erode,

and soon, will be gone.

And the parade, will diminish,

as time marches on.


Excepting, the few,

who never get out,

and are more, to be pitied,

than talked about.


Who, still wander that land,

in night, and in day.

With the ogres, and meanies,

that won’t go away.
