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.
