Lumpy's Lullaby

by Sam Carter

Where will you go when your wide eyes close
When you’re done with the day and you’re yawning
May your dreams be kind, if they’re not then nevermind
I’ll be here when you wake in the morning

If you dream that you’re driving a double-decker bus
Through the streets to the stops and the stations
And the strangers aboard start kicking up a fuss
You can dream they’re your friends and relations


If you fly to the moon in an apple-shaped balloon
With your cheese knife stashed in your spacesuit
And you find that the gruyere has peaked a little soon
You can dream that the moon is a grapefruit
