Going Down

Going down

A little boy in a little house

Surrounded by big hearts in a big city

Bed time

So he grabbed Grover

With Grover under one arm and a book under the other

He announced “we’re going down”

Down to the bedroom

Down to a world of sleep

Between the real and unreal

From the known to unknown

To go to sleep requires a brave heart

You need a friend for the journey

You need a good story before the trip



Promise of future in our classrooms

Hope and it’s promise in the seats

One wanted to jump not sit

“Fix this” the teacher said,

“Doctor help this child”

He took the pill

Sat so still
