Disappear Fear, a Lullaby
Bon voyage Horror;
Good night Fright and jerky ole Terror.
Dread, and Anxiety, both take a hike–
Along with all your bumps in the night.
Let loose of my imagination
You snot, mouldy green Trepidation
Sound the alarm, Hey, Apprehensions
Get out! Scoot! Fly this very instant
And take with you your sore chum Panic
Don’t need all your false Apparitions.
Not pretty at all this nightly,
Fear was a bed habit.
Replaced by peace rightly
In the mind,
And in the heart united.
Sleep jitters cease–
Be gone bad dreams with herds of night horses
I’m wearing armor-plated pajamas.
