Lullaby

Purple,
Purple,
Twilight
Sky light.

Purple as a king's cape
Purple as a grape.

Purple for the evening
When daylight is leaving.

Soft and purry,
Gentle and furry,
Velvet evening-time.

Purple,
Purple.
Sky light
Goodbye light.

Dusky
Musky
Into night.

I might be willing to have children for that. Clearly, I am a sick and twisted individual. But between that and the nursery versions of music like Tool, I think the new niece is in for some dark treats.

That seems much easier than subjugating my own happiness to that of a child. : )

I just want to know where I can get a baby stroller like that!
