The Origin of Insomnia

Contributed by softerware on Tuesday, 18th September 2018 @ 06:11:37 AM in AEST
Topic: HumorPoetry

Most fairy tales are gruesome; Where wolves and goblins hide;
They left me shaking in my bed; My eyeballs open wide!

Tales to reach us kids to teach us; To be wise and good;
Was scary stuff that kept me up; Recall these if you would:

Theres the tale of Jack and Jill; As up the hill they rushed;
But down they fell, got hurt as well; I think that they were pushed.

Remember the old woman; Who lived inside a shoe?
She had one kid too many; One had to go, we knew!

The farmers wife kept sharp her knife; to sever tails of mice:
Mice tails I knew where hid in stew, or green beans or the like.

I stayed away from curds and whey; Miss Muffet was a twit;
Arachnids love the stuff enough; To cuddle up to it!

I went to bed with fairy tales, then prayed my soul to keep;
(Just in case I passed away while I was sound asleep).

Beneath your bed; If youre well read; theyre planning our defeat!
Look out! Look out! When grown ups tout the joys of counting sheep!

Hello my friend,
You have changed my perspective on these short stories and rhymes that me, like so many others grew up listening to when we were younger. Since I started reading your work I have found so many of your pieces to be inspirational.
I cant choose a favorite line because the entire piece got me to thinking about how correct you actually are :)
Yet again you have penned another brilliant and fascinating piece.

Your friend
