Piano Boy (In Tribute To Tim Burton And Roald Dahl)
Harold and Betty, a nice couple I’m told,
Adopted a boy, just seven days old.
This perfect arrival, so rosy and sweet,
Gave Harold and Betty a family complete.
However, their joy was soon to be tried,
As this perfect arrival, never once cried.
A blessing you say, what more could one ask,
Indeed, rocking a child is an odious task.
Especially at three am in the morning, when he falls asleep, just as your day is dawning.
But Harold and Betty would not have the pleasure of singing to sleep their new little treasure.
Instead, when they woke him and expected a cry,...
I dreamt I slept by the sea,
I slept before the howling wind
Amidst the screaming gulls and thunderous waves.
I felt the salt spray stroke my lips
And heard echoes from deep, distant caves.
I knew the sand beneath my fingers and sensed the piercing shadow of disquieting cliffs.
I chose not to stir, but slept in peace, held by the whispering sea.
