The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton
The sun has set on the british empire.
Now everybody clap your hands
to take a bath in the sun
with all due respect!
They hang out the flag of war
and find themselves not guilty.
With some exceptions, they brush their teeth in french.
And when the night falls loneliness calls.
And down goes frazier,
but not for me
they’re on their way to bed at last.
The day is now far spent.
They say good things take time,
and somebody get this man a shield.
The moon is made of cheese.
The sea is a hungry dog.
We need to talk about kevin.
