 Who bought their vivid dreams from the Sandman?

The ones that come to tiptoe through your mind.

They seem to move through secret doors, without keys,

Opening wispy windows to another space and time.

 

A penny for your thoughts. --- Who wants to know?

A dime for the one who sowed the seeds.

A quarter will not get you what you asked for

And a dollar will not buy you what you need.

 

***

 

I suspect that the Sandman is a fallacy.

In fact, I do believe that he's a she!

A man would never lull you into slumber

He'd just conk you on the head. You see?

 

Conking is effective and much faster,

But lulling is a mothers way to act.

So I reasoned and debated with myself,

The Sandman is a woman. That's a fact!

 

Now we have a problem in her name.

It should be changed, to suite her tender ways.

It's not sand; it is dust that she sprinkles

That takes us to that place in slumber's haze.

 

Her name should flow like water past the lips

Reminiscent of those dreamlands in the skies.

If you think of something --- call her just to see

If she answers with a sprinkling in your eyes.
