The Sandman

The Sandman

Here comes the nightly visitor
To do something very sinister
He waits for you to crawl in bed
Soon you will wish you were dead
Coming from the cracks in the floor
He will forever make you his whore
Covering your eyes to make you blind
Forcing you to lose your fragile mind
Grinning as you begin to struggle
You scream as he begins to snuggle
Now with your mouth now he can make you ill
Dropping in his tiny sleeping pill
Forcing you to choke and swallow
Laying your head on your pillow
As you begin to slumber
He will begin to plunder
Stealing away your innocence
Taking every shadow of a sense
He shall touch every piece of skin
As he comments his lust like sin
You awake tasting gritty  sand
Never again will you be grand
He has done all he can
You have met the Sandman
He was your nightly visitor
That did something sinister

This is a little dark even for my taste, but belongs with the evil
Nursery rhymes book i am working on that will, slowly become darker
as you read the Rhymes, I feel Sandman will be up to some more tricks
in other future tales so be on the look out….and sleep well.
