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!
