and ode to my so's favorite book, which we read at least three time a week--more if i didn't insist on something different...
In the Great Green Room
there was an abacus
and Thomas, blue and Percy, green
and a picture of...
the most perfect build of a marble machine
And there were twelve lined up trains between yogurt stains
and a big red trolley
carrying a stuffed Wall-e
and a sit and spin
that will mix him like gin
A PB&J cut in fourths twice a day
And a tired drunk blogger who is typing away.
goodnight cars that go zoom!
Goodnight trains and yogurt stains.
Goodnight Thomas, Goodnight Percy,
Finally some silence, Lord have mercy.
Goodnight sit and spin
Hello liter of Gin
goodnight crying to get your way
And goodnight to the drunk blogger,
And goodnight to the boy who gives the best kisses and hugs.
