Sweet little infant, all is fine,

And somewhere in Zambia, the sun still shines.

And I am envious of those Zambian dudes,

For they have the sun, and all I’ve got is you.


So basically baby, do me this favor:

Go to sleep now and save me the labor

Of rocking you, kid.  And don’t cry like that!

I’m seriously considering feeding you to the cat.


In fact, I’ve had it with your crying, you prick!

Let me go to the window and prepare my drop kick.

Oh, hello there darling.  I’m just getting some air.

So good bye now, you baby.  Cry at someone who cares!

One response to “Lullaby

  1. I bought my wife the book “Go the F#ck to Sleep” for Christmas last year. This reminds of that a little. Good write. I personally wrote a lullaby for my children (kept it nice), however I think a twisted one is a cool challenge. I think I will give it a try. Thanks for the read made me laugh … especially after having to drive my 18 month old son around at 1am last night through a severe wind storm to get him to sleep!
