Cheese at Bedtime

Eating Cheese just before retiring to bed is inviting strange dreams in the night my mother always said. I loved ignoring mother’s advice. This is just a bit of daftness that came upon me whilst my wife was talking (And talking)



Blackbirds chased me around the room

Until I hit ‘em with a broom

Then they flew straight up my nose

Whilst I was modelling ladies’ clothes


Next I argued with my mother

Had a fight with my kid brother

Then I found some knitting wool

In brightest colours, nothing dull


Six silver snakes with neon eyes

Started crawling in my flies

I felt the reptiles start to wriggle

This tickled me and made me giggle


All this happened in my dream

Whilst I bathed in a bowl of cream

It was no joke when I awoke

Rubbed my eyes, gave my head a poke


For lying there upon the bed

In lurid hues of blue and red

Were a dozen ladies frocks

And a newly knitted pair of socks

Well it made me chuckle HaHa!


Hahahaha! Very amusing Pronto! Reminds me of that oldie of someone dreaming the nightmare of spending all night being forced to eat a giant marshmallow and then waking up to find the pillow gone! Hahaha! I presume when you woke up, you quickly went home, buying the wife some flowers on the way! Blaming it on a cheese sandwich in the pub indeed


Really made me laugh Pronto, shouldn’t eat cheese at night, well rhymed,.Peter
