An errant thought crept up on me
I didn’t have a chance.
It made me climb a big old tree
And pushed me off a branch!
Then I waded in a pool
With mud and creepy crawlies.
Something wrapped around my leg
How somethings’ get their jollies!
Please! Oh please! Just let me out!
Let my thoughts be nice
A hunk of cheese, a glass of wine
Perhaps leave out the mice!
But I fear, it’s not to be
My thought is on a bender
It thinks of things I’d never do!
Could I just surrender?
Bungee jumping from a plane?
I think that thought is crazy!
Deep sea diving and no mask?
The world is getting hazy!
I was startled from the thought,
Alarms began to squawk!
Now the world is settling down
It’s just my bedside clock!
