Dreams of Dali
As I slowly drift to sleep
I trip and fall into foolish dreams.
Where before I counted sheep,
Now I’m caught in torpid schemes.
Dicing with devils in denim hats
Breaking bread with brazen cats
Dancing Dangerously with diplomats.
Oh! What crazy capers my mind unleashes
When lost in a world of lucid dreaming,
Melted clocks and Dali-esque pastiches
Then Suddenly I awaken screaming.
Though darkness fills my dreaming mind,
There’s nothing darker than humankind.
